SpaceX to lay off 10% of its workforce, LA Times
"SpaceX will lay off about 10% of its more than 6,000 employees, a person familiar with the matter said Friday."
SpaceX Statement on Workforce Downsizing
"To continue delivering for our customers and to succeed in developing interplanetary spacecraft anda global space-based Internet, SpaceX must become a leaner company. Either of these developments, even when attempted separately, have bankrupted other organizations. This means we must part ways with some talented and hardworking members of our team. We are grateful for everything they have accomplished and their commitment to SpaceX's mission. This action is taken only due to the extraordinarily difficult challenges ahead and would not otherwise be necessary."
