Tesla CEO Elon Musk has denied allegations by an employee that his car company overworks and underpays its workers, CNBC reports.
Jose Moran, who says he works for Tesla’s San Francisco Fremont plant, wrote a scathing blog post about his working conditions, including "excessive mandatory overtime."
Musk responded in a Twitter direct message to tech news site Gizmodo, saying, "Frankly, I find this attack to be morally outrageous." He suggested that Moran had been placed at Tesla by labor union United Auto Workers, which tasked him with agitating for unionization.
UAW called Musk’s claim "fake news" in a statement to CNBC.
