Tesla employee awarded $137 million


Recommended Posts


This guy hit the jackpot after sueing Tesla over racial abuse.


Elevator operator Owen Diaz, 52, described the discrimination he faced at Tesla as being ‘straight from the Jim Crow era’ before he was given a $137million (£100million) payout.


He found offensive cartoons showing derogatory caricatures of black children around the plant where he worked, but his supervisors turned a blind eye.


When he complained, one of his supervisors told him that he ‘couldn’t take a joke.’


He was also told "go back to your country". *-)
