Chrysler Workers Caught Drinking, Toking Up During Break

Last week, MyFoxDetroit showed footage it had secretly taped of at least 15 autoworkers at a Chrysler plant “drinking beer and smoking marijuana before heading to work.” Chrysler has told the television station that it has suspended the employees without pay pending an investigation, and that it will likely determine next actions today. Check out the video below.

At the Detroit Free Press, Mitch Albom says lots of people drink (and sometimes smoke) at lunchtime and maybe it’s not as huge a scandal as some are making it out to be.
