Check out one of d@w-DC’s members on RT America’s broadcast! Anya Parampil reports on billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s recent comments that he supports President Trump’s decision to create a “Space Force” branch of the military. Anya explains that while many of us associate the Space Force with military expansion, Musk likely sees the initiative as an opportunity to win government contracts, breaking down how his SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity companies thrive off taxpayer money. Kevin Gustafson, organizer with Democracy at Work DC, joins In Question to trace the source of Musk’s wealth and discuss the poor working conditions faced by many of his employees.
