Elon Musk, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SpaceX and Tesla Motors, on Wednesday tweeted that over 10,000 people were needed for Giga Texas “through 2022”.
Giga Texas is a factory that is worth $1.1 billion and will open in the final quarter of the year. The plant would manufacture Tesla Cybertruck, Tesla Semi, along with cars of Tesla Model Y and Model 3 for deliveries on the east coast, as reported by CNET.

You can work for Tesla straight out of high school”, tweeted Tesla Owners Austin.
