LOL! Who would want to build a factory in America? Obama will screw the bond holders and shareholders, UAW will steal everything, regulations, taxes, islamic prayer rugs, graft, drunken idiots.

I like Stuart Varney. Sadly he has to work for a scummy company partially owned by Saudi Prince Al Waleed pushing the Islam agenda. We need an american network like Kelsey Grammer's Conservative Network.

Note the Harley T-shirts on the drunks. I was getting lunch today and the cops were arresting a guy with Harley stickers on his SUV who was visably drunk.

You can’t discriminate against them just because they’re lazy alcoholics.

Any more it seems that union workers enjoy the same benefits as many elitist politicians in Washington.

One of them drove off in a new Mustang, and another had an old Buick. I thought UAW workers beat up any coworker who didn’t drive their factory’s product. But since it’s Chrysler, I can’t blame them.

This was a regular habit for these pillars of society. I know their union is defending them, saying the pot smoking and booze guzzling happened on their lunch breaks, but one has to ask: What kind of work product or performance is expected of them that the effects of the drugs and alcohol does not get noticed by management?

Are they part of that group that was being paid to sit around and read newspapers because there was no work for them and they could not be laid off?

And to top it off, they were driving drunk and stoned. No cops around...ever?

And one of the guys is driving away in a Mustang (that’s a Ford for those of you in Rio Linda).

I enjoyed watching Kirsten Powers on FNC last night defending the Chrysler workers by perpetuating a stereotype of bankers and three-martini lunches and asking why conservatives want to pick on the little guy having a beer and a some pot with his lunch. Number one, do two wrongs make a right? Number two, these guys have industrial jobs. They could hurt themselves and/or make an inferior product, both of which cost the company (and now the TAXPAYER!!!) money, if they’re drunk and high on the job. If they’re taking that risk, they should be fired. Every question is about class warfare with hucksters like her.

Now perhaps people will realize why their GM junk has those niggling funny noises and flawed attachments that hallmark GM products. I once saw a truck with just one side of factory bolts holding down the bed! And it was on a dealer’s lot straight from the factory!

This is nothing. I lived in Michigan during the 70s and 80s. The biggest drug dens in the State was the auto factories. That is the truth.

I believe they are all suspended without pay and since this did go national they are deep in the wilderness.

They will be reinstated. The UAW released a statement about the issue that did not condemn their actions nor promise that if found to be guilty of the videotaped actions they would be fired. Instead it was a bunch of empty platitudes and promises to ‘look into it’.

They won’t be fired.

Hopefully that drunk/pot head will lose his job and the Mustang will get reposessed. The old Buick’s door was bash in. What union scum.

If taxpayer money was shutoff then GM and Chrysler would go out of business for good in a month or less.

OSHA and the union would have to approve the cups to make sure they were "safe". No telling how long that would take.

That's why I would like to buy a Ford, but I won't. If they were to ever purge themselves of the unions, I would buy their products.

GM and Chrysler? Do I have to elaborate?

This kind of crap is the WORST-Kept secret in Union factories.

I can tell you stories about it that will curl your hair. Like the Hidy-Holes in Union steel mills, complete with beds, frigdges, big-screen TV’s and Air-Conditioners where workers hide for HOURS from management.

And even better, when found, AS LONG AS THEY AREN’T ASLEEP, they cannot be fired!!!

Note the Harley T-shirts on the drunks.

What caught my attention was a Chrysler-Fiat worker driving off in
a Ford Mustang.

Well, I guess I can’t fault ‘em for having at least some good taste.

Sarcasm aside, I'm pretty sure that if they're diagnosed as alcoholics they do enjoy a great deal of legal protection. Don't you know everyone is a victim?

Then you’re smoking something. They won’t be fired, they’ll be suspended until the media moves on to something else and then they’ll be reinstated or transferred and reinstated.

Yeah I liked that Mustang. Hopefully it will be repo’ed soon.

I can tell you that if Uncle Sam cut off taxpayer $ to Chrysler/Fiat and GM - they would be out of business in a month.

I wonder what a GOP Congress will do about them?

That’s the VXIwow-mahnnnX Amendment to the constitution, mahnnnnnn- the workers right to go to work to get loaded.

I figure about 23% of the workforce across the board does it.

Morons.

Nothing quite like being in command of a squad of stoned idiots- you get a lot done, and with sparkling conversation to boot.

This sort of thing has been going on forever. These guys were just more committed than most. I know working on an assembly line is mind numbing work, but if you can’t do it straight then you need to find another line of work.

BTW all they have to do is say that they are alcoholics and they are a protected class. The will have to go to some rehab, maybe an AA meeting or two, keep their noses clean for a year and the “letter to file” will be pulled. After that they are free to indulge again.

Years ago, perhaps deacdes ago, Consumer Reports did an article on auto manufacturers. They found that vehicles built on a Monday or Friday were the most often the vehicles with rattles in the dash (small tools left int he dash when attached), rattles caused by bolts with no nuts, and even parts left off the final product. Three deacdes ago, my then brother in law would pull the dash on any GM truck he bought to make sure it was not manufactured on a MOnday or Friday. I think the computer system with bar codes makes that unnecessary now, since the date it rolls off the assembly line is encoded and can be found on the door panel.

I feel the same way. I like Ford products and admire management for not taking a bailout, but as long as their cars are built by the UAW I’ll pass. It pains me to say it, but I’m more likely to buy a Mexican-built Fiesta than a UAW built vehicle, such is my disgust and repulsion for unions.

There have always been a number of people drinking or smoking marijuana on the job, I’ve seen it since my first job as a teenager at a long closed greasy spoon in downtown Pittsburgh.

These guys were caught and should be fired, but it won’t get rid of the problem. It will send a warning to others in the industry that might also be guilty, but just not caught yet, to be more discrete. At least for a while.
