In her email Brewer described the base pay bump as "very slight," and coming as salespeople have been given more responsibilities, according to CNBC's report."We have been told to be scrappy while watching our wages diminish, our work load increase and continuous promises of a better future if we push through now," the email reportedly said. "This future will not come at Tesla if we do not fight for it. The company is doing exceedingly well with stocks and sales but the amount we make has decreased."Brewer also started an online petition to advocate for a pay raise. She says in the petition that Tesla managers have so far tried to "divide and intimidate" her and her colleagues.Tesla did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.The past year has been a tumultuous one for Tesla's sales division. Last February, the company said it would close most of its stores, though it partially reversed that announcement a few weeks later when it said it would closeonly low-performing locations. And in December, Business Insider first reported Tesla's internal announcement that it would merge the roles of its sales and delivery employees.Tesla has alsochanged the compensationstructure for its sales employeesmultiple timesandshifted from Salesforceto a proprietary customer-relationship-management system.Read CNBC's full story here.Are you a current or former Tesla sales employee' Do you have an opinion about what it's like to work there or how much you're paid' Contact this reporter at mmatousek@businessinsider.com.
