Tech billionaire Elon Musk He revealed that he believes that some unions are the primary driver of the policies of the Democratic Party and Biden administration.
The general public does not know the degree to which the unions control the Democratic Party. One need not speculate on this point, “Mask He said in an interview Posted over the weekend.
Two of Musk’s companies, Tesla and SpaceX, are not unionized, which Musk says is due to “passive employment” in Silicon Valley. He says Tesla workers usually have several job offers.
Last year, Biden held an EV summit where Tesla was not expressly allowed to attend, but [United Auto Workers] I was. Musk, who has an estimated fortune of more than $250 billion, said, “Tesla made two-thirds of all electric cars in the United States.
The United Auto Workers (UAW), with more than 390,000 active members, is one of the largest unions in the United States and has been a major player in Democratic Party politics since its inception nearly 100 years ago.
“So, intentionally excluding us from the EV summit in the White House — but including the UAW — tells you everything you need to know,” Musk said in the interview. “They have so much power over the White House that they can disqualify Tesla from the top of electric cars – and that’s crazy.”
During the recent summit, Musk said, Biden praised General Motors and its president, Mary Barra, for spearheading the “electric car revolution,” even though GM only introduced 26 electric vehicles in the same quarter. Tesla is by far biggest maker Electric cars in the United States.
“This is kind of next-level crazy,” he said of the accident.
In early June, Biden also brushed aside Musk’s comments about a potential recession and said other auto companies had made recent investments in electric vehicles.
“Well, let me tell you, while Elon Musk talks about it, Ford is significantly increasing its investment,” Biden said during an event in response to Musk’s Twitter post about the economy potentially hitting a recession in the coming months.
“I think Ford is increasing investment in building new electric cars, and I’m adding 6,000 new employees — union employees, I might add — in the Midwest,” He saidnoting that “Chrysler’s former company, Stellantis, is also making similar investments in electric vehicles.”
Musk has repeatedly criticized the UAW in recent months, take a swipe at union in late March after a former union official pleaded guilty to raising more than $2 million from the organization.
“Auto Workers Union slogan – Fight for the right to embezzle money from auto workers!” he wrote.
It came days after UAW President Ray Curry said his union had not had any discussions with Tesla or Musk since Musk invited UAW to hold the Tesla Union vote.
“It would be a well-intentioned effort if they were interested in getting that kind of exchange,” Curry said at the time.
