Furious Elon Musk hates new Electric Car tax incentive for unionised companies

Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are currently on opposite sides on the pettiest space race. However, the two billionaires do so agree on one thing; they both hate unions. Historically, just like Bezos, Musk has been against unionising. Unfortunately, for him, that seems to be catching up with him.

Elon Musk hates Electric Car tax incentive

In response to Musk and Tesla's anti-union ways, the Democratic House lawmakers have introduced a new bill. If passed, the bill could give Electric Car companies a $4,500 tax incentive for customers. However, that incentive only applies for companies that have unionised.

If passed, the tax incentive could give Tesla competitors a way to compete against Tesla. While Musk's car company has enjoyed a long reign, a massive price cut to its rivals could see the start of its downfall.

Elon Musk has made his distaste of the tax incentive very known. In response to a fan on Twitter, the Tesla CEO expressed his thoughts on the matter.

He thinks it's an anti-Tesla conspiracy

As usual, Elon Musk's thoughts on the tax incentive boils down to a faux anti-Tesla conspiracy. Instead of helping others afford electric cars, it must be to stunt his sales. The Tesla CEO said:

“This is written by Ford/UAW lobbyists, as they make their electric car in Mexico. Not obvious how this serves American taxpayers.”

Tesla’s cemented anti-union approach to its workers is not a new development. Tesla is often criticised for poor working conditions. In turn, this has made Musk an enemy in the eyes of certain Democrat politicians, including President Biden.

Biden recently hosted a celebratory event for the future of electric cars. Hilariously, Musk and Tesla were not invited.
