After a recent article appeared on a Buffalo news website discussing
the poor working conditions and a "dog and pony show" at Tesla's 
Buffalo plant that was conceived to help secure taxpayer money, one 
state senator is growing increasingly unamused and skeptical of Tesla. 
In fact, State Senator Tim Kennedy is "infuriated". 
Recently an investigative report was written about the working 
conditions at Tesla's Buffalo plant, claiming: 
    During a media tour, work was "fabricated" to make employees look busy 
    Tesla had walls built to hide unused equipment and blocked off 
large areas for media appearances 
    Employees would watch movies on their cell phones while on 12 hour shifts 
    Tesla's reported employment numbers in the state for 2018 did not 
match FOIA requests that returned employment data from 2017 
    "Nothing improved during the entire employment as far as 
production,” according to an ex-employee 
Kennedy also claims that these ex-employees had reached out to his 
office with similar complaints.

"I don’t know how Gigafactory II has been going on this long without 
any checks and balances or any government officials or politicians 
actually monitoring or watching and holding them to some standards," 
one employee told WIVB. 
Also, Kennedy isn’t ignoring the complaints of his constituents: “We 
immediately contacted Tesla, we let them know that if these 
allegations were in fact true, certainly they were disturbing and 
raised eyebrows. We wanted to know the answers.” 
He has yet to receive a formal response from the company, but stated 
that he was "infuriated" when he found out that Tesla had laid off 
about 50 employees at the Buffalo plant as part of the company's 7% 
cut in overall workforce. 
Sounds like..... FOXSCAMMMMMMMM! 
Can you say.... Fox-Scam-O-Rama Mount Pleasant?!!!  I knew you could!
