CNBC has the news with an internal Tesla email stating the news, with the company noting in another email that demand for its cars was "quite a bit higher" than supply for the quarter -- with lots of sales of the cheaper Model 3 and Model Y vehicles.

Tesla workers receive a full week pay, a few paid holidays and "limited paid opportunities" to work in other teams within the company. Once it's all said and done there will be 5 unpaid days for Tesla workers who can't find other work inside the company, or use their own time off.

An unfortunate thing to see considering how big Tesla is, and another nail into that coffin is that the company has reportedly shut down its PR department and "no longer responds to requests for comment" adds Engadget. This is a huge deal, something I looked into -- yeah, back in October, Tesla "dissolved its PR department -- technically becoming the first automaker who doesn't talk to the press" reports Electrek.

The site added that the move has been "confirmed to Electrek at the highest level at Tesla with the source saying, "We no longer have a PR Team"."
