The nation is crumbling, institutions like NASA are over in the corner eating woke glue, and no one feels like we have a purpose anymore.
The Department of "Justice's" solution? Sue Elon Musk for apparently not wanting to hire random refugees to build rockets!
That scent you smell is clown makeup. Sure, SpaceX is the only thing keeping us at the forefront of the space race, but at least we'll have equity when everyone else is on Mars!
The lawsuit says between 2018 and 2022, SpaceX "wrongly claimed" that export control laws limited its hiring to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.
The DOJ has been investigating SpaceX since June 2020, when the department's Immigrant and Employee Rights Section received a complaint of employment discrimination from a non-U.S. citizen.
"Our investigation found that SpaceX failed to fairly consider or hire asylees and refugees because of their citizenship status and imposed what amounted to a ban on their hire regardless of their qualification, in violation of federal law," Kristen Clarke, Assistant Attorney General of the DOJ's Civil Rights Division, said in a statement.
Export control laws are national security policies meant to keep critical tech from falling into enemy hands.
SpaceX is building rockets so sophisticated that the boosters can land themselves and be reused, not to mention the heavy Starship that is the biggest and most advanced rocket ever created.
That might warrant strict controls in hiring since other nations have been sending immigrants for generations with the expressed goal of stealing our secrets.
(Did you think only the Soviets used HUMINT?)
The DOJ lawsuit seeks to win "fair consideration and back pay for asylees and refugees who were deterred or denied employment at SpaceX due to the alleged discrimination," as well as civil penalties and policy changes from the company.
My father works in the aerospace industry. Want to guess how many hacking attempts his company faces daily?
Nevermind that: Obviously SpaceX is racist and must pay. This DOJ would NEVER weaponize itself against political foes, right?
They REALLY hate Elon Musk, don't they?
