Employees Buy Tesla For CEO!

That was f*cking cool!

Employees of Gravity Payments have chipped in to buy a new Tesla for Dan Price, the CEO who made headlines for boosting their salaries to a minimum of $70,000 a year — showing their support following his victory last week in a hard-fought court battle with his brother, the company’s minority shareholder.

Price posted the photos below on his Facebook page, writing, “Shocked. Still in disbelief. Never imagined this was possible. Gravity employees saved up and pitched in over the past six months and bought me my dream car. A brand new, gorgeous blue ‪#‎Tesla‬. Still in shock. How do I even begin to say thank you?”

The inscription reads, “Dan, Thank you for always putting the team before yourself. This gift is our way of showing how much your sacrifice means to us.”

The company says the project was managed by Alyssa O’Neal, a single mother who was one of the employees most impacted by the shift to $70,000 salaries. “This was a special way for us all to thank him for all of the sacrifices he’s made and challenges he’s faced for each of us since he announced our $70k minimum wage. Through all of the successes and challenges of the past year, Dan has never once put himself first,” she said.
