"President Obama as the return of manufacturing jobs to America, and green ones at that. The facility was estimated have produced 15,000 batteries a year and added hundreds of jobs. So far, 200 workers are being paid to do nothing."
"Workers placed on furlough are eligible to collect unemployment for that week, but thats not the only government subsidy that is used to sustain LG Chems work force. Of the 200 employees at the plant, half are being paid via Recovery Act funds. 40 percent of the companys $133 million expenditures have gone to foreign companies, mostly South Korean"
