SpaceX to lay off about 10 percent of its workforce – source – Zee Business

Elon Musk`s SpaceX will lay off about 10 percent of its more than 6,000 employees, a source familiar with the matter said on Friday.

The company did not comment on the number of layoffs but said in emailed comments that it needs to become a “leaner” organization for which it would “part ways” with some of its workforce.

“To continue delivering for our customers and to succeed in developing interplanetary spacecraft and a global space-based Internet, SpaceX must become a leaner company”, a SpaceX spokesman said.

The layoffs were reported earlier by the LA Times.
