Major auto company promises factory workers a roller coaster and free frozen yogurt
With ups and downs, twists and turns, the average worker's career path may seem like a roller coaster ride.
One major player in the automotive industry plans to make roller coaster rides a daily occurrence.
In a company wide email, Tesla CEO Elon Musk promises free frozen yogurt and an electric pod car roller coaster to workers at the company's Fremont, California assembly plant.
Tweeting out "Roller coasters are awesome," Musk's email was penned after public employee claims of unsafe working conditions, low wages and mandatory overtime.
Musk also says that the United Auto Workers union, which is trying to unionize Tesla employees, does not "share their mission" and has "true allegiance" "to the giant car companies."
Musk's email says, "As we get closer to being a profitable company, we will be able to afford more and more fun things."
While fun may be high on Elon Musk's list, most Tesla employees would probably prefer that profit go towards their paychecks, rather than frozen yogurt and a roller coaster.
