But this is a ruling that reduced the money he got… *The judge slashed Diaz’s financial award, however. While the jury awarded Diaz $6.9 million in compensatory damages and $130 million in punitive damages, Orrick set the amounts at $1.5 million in compensatory damages and $13.5 million in punitive damages instead* And tesla are arguing to pay less. They effectively won this stage and, undoubtedly it will continue…


As a fellow 1099 independent contractor worker, I see a much different problem in this article that isn’t even addressed, which is using contractors to do work so they don’t have to pay for benefits or insurance. So many places are doing this as a way to allow *even less* employee rights.


Elon fan boys on max copium in this thread lmao


I guess you can take the Elon out of South Africa but you can’t take the South Africa out of Elon.


This Board is fucking pathetic sometimes, these comments are the most pathetic I’ve ever seen on here. If you were treated like these people you’d be shattered for life, You’re not funny or clever or cool with these embrassing “jokes” about “Wow, I wish I was physically and mentally abused and blackmailed by my employer then had to spend 6 years in court for justice” shut the fuck up already. Reddiors shit on twitter users being insane and out of touch then fill a thread with this trash.
