Elon Musk continues to push back against the left-wing agenda.
Musk hasn’t been afraid to stand up for what he believes is right and good for his employees.
And now the war between Elon Musk and Joe Biden just went to an entirely new level.
The United Auto Workers (UAW) is one of the most powerful unions in the country.
If you want to build a car in the United States, you need to either join forces with the UAW or somehow get past them.
To the shock of many, Elon Musk has kept his uber-successful car company, Tesla, union-free, which not surprisingly is infuriating the UAW.
And, in turn, infuriating Joe Biden.
The UAW dropped millions on the 2020 presidential race in support of Joe Biden in order to get a mighty big payoff in Biden’s massive, socialist, so-called “human infrastructure” bill.
Joe Biden has been trying desperately to make the radical, leftist environmentalists happy by pushing electric cars, but that doesn’t entirely help the UAW, so a little known provision was put in Biden’s bill that will give the union exactly what it wants.
In the “human infrastructure” bill there is a $4,500 tax credit for the purchase of an electric car so long as it’s produced by a unionized workforce and more than 50% of the company’s workforce are not shareholders.
This is a direct slap at Tesla.
Even if Musk chose to unionize Tesla, he would still be prevented from receiving the tax credit because the company provides stock options to its employees.
Elon Musk took to Twitter to express his displeasure with Joe Biden.
Musk called Biden a UAW sock puppet and proceeded to tweet a story that has Biden’s head exploding.
The story Must tweeted is about a female UAW worker who is asking why she’s paying union dues when the UAW doesn’t protect her from sexual harassment.
This is just the latest battle in Musk’s fight to run his company the way he sees fit without government interference.
Prior to this Musk moved himself and his business out of the liberal controlled state of California and to the far more business-friendly state of Texas.
There is no doubt that Elon Musk is incredibly successful and cares about the wellbeing of his employees.
There is also little doubt that Joe Biden could care less about the wellbeing of employees and just wants to continue buying the unions’ support.
