San Francisco: Billionaire Elon Musk’s infrastructure and tunnel construction firm Boring Company has laid off five employees, barely a month after it unveiled its first tunnel in the US. According to the Recode, on Friday, the company terminated five employees, at least some of whom helped construct that first underground passageway. The spokesman said that the employees were fired for performance reasons as part of regular performance reviews, the report added.
“The Boring Company is hiring for over a dozen roles, pursuing a number of projects across the country, and planning to grow significantly in 2019,” he was quoted as saying in the report. Musk had unveiled the prototype tunnel for his envisioned zero-emission, high-speed transit system — including a surface-to-tunnel car elevator and a Tesla modified — to run along the tunnel track, outside SpaceX’s California headquarters in mid-December 2018, according to the Fast Company.
