Tesla Gigafactory coming up short on employment promise

Tesla's Gigafactory, the production complex that will ultimately make the batteries that the company needs for its electric vehicles, has been the focus of much sensationalism. First was the speculation, and even "bidding" on which state will host the factory. Then, when construction started, reporters were so intrigued that they would break the law just to get a scoop. Now the Gigafactory in Nevada might again be in the spotlight, but in a negative way, as Tesla is allegedly unable to fulfill its promise of generating more jobs and income for the state's citizens.
