Video caught Chrysler workers doing drugs and alcohol at lunch: under investigation

President Obama recently visited the plant to congratulate the work force on its strong work ethic and the quality of the 2011 Grand Cherokee.

Alisa Priddle - DETNEWS - Sep. 23, 2010

The PR could not come at a worse time. --Ed.

Detroit -- Chrysler Group LLC is continuing to identify workers caught drinking and using drugs during their lunch break before returning to work to build Jeep Grand Cherokees at the Jefferson North plant.

The lunchtime habits of a small group of workers, which included a trip to a party story and then to a public park, were captured on video by WJBK-TV (Channel 2). WJBK was tipped off by concerned workers at the plant.

Chrysler executives are now using the video to identify the workers, a number of whom have already been suspended without pay.... [Read More]

The positive spin is that other workers were concerned enough to report the problems but the question is why didn't they report the problems to management?

If management had been doing their job, they wouldn't of had to notify the media.

Excellent point.

I'd bet most financially distressed companies would have disciplined the first worker drinking and caught it early....call it survival skills.

I'm sure glad drinking is expected at work in my industry.

We stop the bottling/canning line for a sensory evaluation of the beer at the beginning of the day.

Re: Video caught Chrysler workers doing drugs and alcohol at lunch: under investigati

I guess you have to be drunk to build an SUV that handles and brakes as such.

"Hey why is my windshield washer spraying tequila!?"
"That helps to, uh, clear the ice"

I guess the mudflaps will be replaced with cocktail umbrellas?

Re: Video caught Chrysler workers doing drugs and alcohol at lunch: under investigati

Watching that video, I started to chuckle because it reminded me of that old Sheryl Crow song - The one where she sings "I like drinking beer at noon on Tuesday". If I remember correctly, in the same verse (or perhaps the next one), she goes on to prosaically describe a man who enjoys setting his fingers on fire. No evidence of that in the Chrysler video here, so it's not quite a perfect match for me to merge the song and the moving pictures in the hopes of getting a Video Music Award out of it.
