Tesla Sued Over Having A ‘ Racially Segregated Workplace’



Tesla Sued Over Having A ' Racially Segregated Workplace'

Tesla stock seems to be plummeting after the tech giant was hit with a lawsuit, which details multiple complaints about the company’s mistreatment of Black factory workers.

According to Wall Street Journal, the suit, filed by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing on Wednesday, includes alleged workplace discrimination happening at Tesla’s U.S. car plant in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“After receiving hundreds of complaints from workers, DFEH found evidence that Tesla’s Fremont factory is a racially segregated workplace where Black workers are subjected to racial slurs and discriminated against in job assignments, discipline, pay, and promotion creating a hostile work environment,” CDFEH’s director Kevin Kish said in a statement.

Tesla responded to the lawsuit in a blog post, insisting that the company takes all the necessary steps to create an inclusive and safe environment for its employees.

“Tesla strongly opposes all forms of discrimination and harassment and has a dedicated Employee Relations team that responds to and investigates all complains,” the company said on Wednesday. “Tesla is also the last remaining automobile manufacturer in California. The Fremont factory has a majority-minority workforce and provides the best paying jobs in the automotive industry to over 30,000 Californians.”

Despite the company’s statement. the lawsuit states that Black employees reported being assigned to more physically demanding tasks compared to their peers of other races, and some reportedly recalled supervisors and managers using racial slurs.

Tesla was previously under fire for reportedly subjecting a Black contract worker to a racially hostile environment. The company ultimately awarded the man $137 million in damages.

Mara Wallet: The Cool New Way To Begin Your Crypto Journey



Mara, a pan-African company that offers an ever-expanding suite of crypto products, has announced the pre-launch of the Mara Wallet, a portal to the cryptoeconomy focused on helping people begin their journey towards conveniently managing their crypto-finance needs, take a major step toward financial freedom, and learn more about cryptocurrency and blockchain in Africa.


The Mara Wallet is a fast and secure multi-currency crypto wallet that gives Africans control over their cryptocurrency. Offering both user-facing products and core infrastructure, Mara reveals a product roadmap that enables users to easily buy, sell, send, withdraw, store, and protect a wide range of fiat and crypto-assets (such as cryptocurrencies and NFTs) in real time and without any prior crypto knowledge.

“At Mara, we are committed to the financial empowerment of the individuals that use our products and services to meet their various crypto-finance needs, and take responsibility in building an informed community seriously,” Chi Nnadi, Co-Founder and CEO at Mara, said while commenting on the pre-launch of the Mara Wallet. “As one of our first steps to achieve crypto education, financial literacy, and ensuring a more equitable distribution of capital, we are delighted to pre-launch the Mara Wallet. Our goal is to get Sub-Saharan individuals started on their journey to leverage a financial infrastructure that they can build their lives upon and make the most of the financial-growth opportunities available in the cryptoeconomy.”


The Mara Wallet waitlist, which is the core mechanic of the pre-launch app, is aimed at crypto-curious and crypto-enthusiast users alike who seek early access to the exchange. Through it they will unlock financial rewards that give users the perfect jumpstart into the #cryptoeconomy.

While describing how the Mara Wallet waitlist works, Chi added, “Pre-registered users will join a queue to enable early access on a first-come, first-served basis. Moreover, a higher position on the waitlist increases the odds of periodically winning prizes. As soon as users join the waitlist, they instantly earn a signup reward. All users who refer the Mara Wallet to their friends, family and community also earn further rewards when those users sign up using their unique referral link. Pre-registered users who participate in the referral activity also improve their chances of moving to top positions on the waitlist.”


The Mara Wallet app is available on the Google Play and Apple App stores. Once formally launched in a few months, the Mara Wallet will enable users to invest in crypto and send money to their family members in real time without processing times, delays, or high fees. To join the waitlist, download the app on the Google Play or the Apple App Store.

The Mara Wallet pre-launch comes at a critical inflection point in the evolution of Sub-Saharan Africa. The current centralised financial system continues to present ongoing obstacles to the development of both local economies and individuals. As a result, food prices have doubled or even tripled in some areas and created record-breaking interest rates. These systems have prompted a dire need for a decentralised alternative.


Mara’s mission is to facilitate a more equitable distribution of capital by providing an alternative that spans across tribes, class, cultures, and countries.

Singer Adele Buys Third Home On One Street [Photo]



Adele has splashed out $10 million on a new house, which is on the same street as two homes she already owns.

The ‘Skyfall’ hitmaker has bought a four-bedroom, four-bathroom abode in Beverly Hills previously owned by Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, and the new property is adjacent to the four-bedroom, six-bathroom building which she currently lives in with eight-year-old son Angelo.

And that’s not all as Adele also owns a six-bedroom house on the opposite side of the street, which is home to her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, so the 47-year-old charity boss is easily able to see his son.

The 33-year-old singer’s latest purchase has a swimming pool and a basketball court, while the exclusive road – which is also home to Jennifer Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, and Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem – has a security booth at one end which prevents unwanted visitors from gaining access.

The British star’s third house was bought in May in the name of the Onwards Alba Trust and Michelle Morton, who is managing director and partner at the ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ hitmaker’s business management company Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman.

Her other two houses were bought under the Gatefield Trust and Todd Gelfland, another partner in the company.

Meanwhile, Adele is expected to release a new album – her first since 2015’s ’25’ – later this year and is said to have used the writing process to work through the breakdown of her marriage.

A source said recently: “Adele has been very busy focusing on herself this last year and has spent months in the studio recording her new album.
