Elon Musk Calls Poor Working Condition Claim 'Morally Outrageous'
American vehicle company, Tesla Motors, seems to be in hot water as of the moment. Company employees of the auto giant in the San Francisco Fremont plant claim to be underpaid, have excessive mandatory overtime and frequently suffer from injuries.
A 43-year-old production associate by the name of Jose Moran was passing around copies of his post on the publishing service Medium. The copy called to form a union at the Tesla auto assembly plant. Elon Musk, the company's Chief Executive Officer, ended up giving a piece of his mind about Moran and the United Auto Workers through Twitter messages with a tech blog.
"Frankly, I find this attack to be morally outrageous," said Elon Musk in a Twitter direct message. Due to high costs, the last car company that remains in California is Tesla. He also says in a direct message to Gizmodo that Moran does not work for them and instead works for United Auto Workers (UAW).
"I've been a loyal employee of Tesla for 4 1/2 years, sometimes working six days a week, 12 hours a day," said Moran regarding Musk's criticism. "I'm not an employee of the UAW, but we get support from the UAW. For Musk to try to trash me down like that -- it's too bad." According to Moran, many of the employees have already been talking about unionizing. They reached out to the UAW however, employees fear to speak out because of management actions.
The UAW responded that Moran is not and has not been paid by them, confirming that he and the others were the ones who reached out to the union. The UAW is also expecting that Tesla would apologize to Moran. This is not a good time for Tesla to be having staff problems as the company is in a crucial moment to roll out the Model 3 soon.

Netflix is Raising Prices, Here’s How it Now Compares to Other Streaming Services
Once a brand gains the trust and loyalty of its market, it is only logical that it attempts to flex its dominant muscle. Such is the tale that fits the recent price hike coming from the stable of Netflix. Having baited consumers into believing that streaming, and not cable subscription, is the right way to go, Netflix has now decided to drop its own form of a bombshell on consumers in the form of price increment. The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
