The filing did not refute the notion that former workers whose complaints are at issue in the case were fired for asking colleagues to sign a letter critical of Musk's social media behavior.

Free speech absolutist fires people for using their free speech, and when a hearing is done to see if this was an abuse his response is not to defend the decision, but to sue the government agency looking to derail the whole thing. Musk seems less and less convinced of the validity of free speech according to his actions.

Free speech does not allow you to criticize the boss using the tools he provides you with. That is the role of unions.

Good point. They should just quit and leave the moron to take care of the mess he made.

Twitter all over again.

When it is "absolute" it should, that is the whole point Musk repeatedly tried to make. Why would criticism of the boss require to be channeled through unions?

From what I've read of US news recently, everything 'violates the Constitution'. Maybe they should burn the damn thing and write a new one.

Let's get you on a Zoom call ASAP with the visionary genius who went out of his way to claim absolute free speech was the reason why he lit $44 billion on fire--sounds like he needs your expert guidance. Then you can both hop on a second Zoom where a random high schooler can explain to you what unions do.

Musk: "I don't want to point a finger here, so I'll use my thumb. You, you, and you over there are fired."

Free speech means that people can say what they want to say about, among myriad other things. what they see as wrong. In fact, that is what free speech is for. It's not about saying things the corporate saints want to hear. Musk doesn't have to agree with them, can argue with them, and even get mad at them. Throwing them into unemployment is, well, wrong. It's going too far.

Yoo, the "free speech" people - you don't understand your own laws, do you? The free speech right allows you the right to freely express your opinions without fear of persecution from your government. That's about Were they working for a governmental institution? No. Do you have the right of free speech when inside someone's private home? No, more, he has every right to throw you out.
