(informationliberation) – The Biden regime’s Department of Justice last week launched a “discrimination” investigation into Elon Musk’s SpaceX for allegedly hiring American citizens over non-citizens.
From CNBC, “Justice Department investigating Elon Musk’s SpaceX following complaint of hiring discrimination”:
The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating SpaceX over whether the company discriminates against non-U.S. citizens in its hiring practices and said Elon Musk’s company is stonewalling a subpoena for information, court documents revealed Thursday.
The DOJ’s Immigrant and Employee Rights Section received a complaint of employment discrimination from a non-U.S. citizen claiming that the company discriminated against him based on his citizenship status.
“The charge alleges that on or about March 10, 2020, during the Charging Party’s interview for the position of Technology Strategy Associate, SpaceX made inquiries about his citizenship status and ultimately failed to hire him for the position because he is not a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident,” DOJ attorney Lisa Sandoval wrote in a court document filed Thursday. The document was a request for a judge to order SpaceX to comply with an administrative subpoena for documents related to how the company hires.
Musk said in 2016 he would like to hire more non-citizens but U.S. government regulations which consider rocket technology a form of “advanced weapons technology” prevent him from doing so:
The timing of this investigation is interesting considering Musk dared to buck the regime last month by speaking out against Big Tech censorship and backing the GameStop short squeeze.
