Chrysler Workers Drink and Smoke Pot During Breaks
Acting on a tip from another worker, a TV crew from Fox News Detroit followed a group of Chrysler workers for a period of ten days, watching every move they made during their breaks.
The stalking payed off in the end, as the cameras recorded a group of about a dozen men while they bought alcohol and consumed it in a parking lot. The alcohol was adorned with what appeared to be marijuana.
When hearing the news and watching the video, Chrysler's executives went ballistic. According to an official statement, the carmaker managed to identify some of those attending the mid-day party and suspended them without pay “indefinitely.”
And it will not end here, Chrysler warns. “Any others found to be involved in this matter will be dealt with swiftly,” the carmaker threatens. In the end, Chrysler managed to identify all the 15 people caught on tape.
“Within 36 hours of learning about this matter, each one of the employees was suspended indefinitely without pay,” the Chrysler statement reads.
“While the evidence seems conclusive, the Company needs to act in accordance with corporate protocol before further action is taken. We expect that by Monday, each of these cases will be dispositioned.“
