Elon Musk and the UAW went toe-to-toe on Twitter last week. Tesla's CEO attacked the union, which is trying to organize workers at the company's plant in Fremont, Calif.
At one point in the testy exchange, the UAW quoted Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford's 2014 comment: "When our times were darkest, in the '06, '07, '08, '09 timeframe, the UAW really helped our industry get back on its feet."
Musk's rejoinder: "Interesting he stops at '09. That's when you drove GM & Chrysler into bankruptcy & lost tens of thousands of jobs for people that counted on you."
