FREMONT — Tesla, in a fresh jolt to the Bay Area employment market, has decided to slash several hundred more jobs in the region, affecting workers in the East Bay and South Bay.

Separately, another electric vehicle maker, Fisker Group, has revealed plans to chop 45 jobs in San Francisco.

American Eagle Outfitters, in another blow for San Francisco’s reeling retail scene, will jettison 52 jobs as part of a permanent closure of its store at the failed San Francisco Centre shopping mall.

Tesla will chop 601 jobs in the Bay area, including 378 jobs in Fremont and another 223 jobs in Palo Alto.

These new layoffs by Tesla arrive on the heels of the electric vehicle maker’s disclosure that it had decided to ax 2,753 jobs in the Bay Area, affecting workers in Fremont and Palo Alto.

This means that Tesla within the last few weeks has revealed plans to eliminate 3,354 jobs in the Bay Area.
