Factory uses “stimulus” money to pay its employees to play cards, board games, and video games
WOOD-TV, an NBC affiliate from Grand Rapids, Michigan, reports:
HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) -Workers at LG Chem, a $300 million lithium-ion battery plant heavily funded by taxpayers, tell Target 8 that they have so little work to do that they spend hours playing cards and board games, reading magazines or watching movies.
They say it’s been going on for months… playing video games, Texas hold-’em and Monopoly or doing Sudoku or crossword puzzles — all on company time. The employee said some watch movies.
And what does President Obama have to say about this?
According to the same article, when Obama visited the factory, he said:
“This is a symbol of where Michigan is going, this is a symbol of where Holland is going, and this is a symbol of where America’s going.”
