That is pretty common. You should see my parking lot where I work at lunch. Beer and smoke fest everyday. The census guards call the cops on our plant all the time. But the po po can't do anything unless they catch them on the road. Because it's private property.

Random testing doesn't differentiate partying at work from partying at home. I got nothing against drinkin' and tokin' at home...just keep it at home.

A quick breath test or motor-skills test on the way back in from lunch break would suffice.

Thanks to the unions of the United States these dumbfucks are protected, the end user gets screwed, and the country continues to go down the toilet. Bullshit, buy Chinese.

BOOOOOO!

I'm not really too concerned. I'm sure this happens a lot more often it's just that these guys got caught. It's definitely not a reason to buy Chinese!

That kind of attitude is exactly what's causing the problem. You're not concerned because it's commonplace? That's downright retarded.

My friends and I had this running joke that the only explanation for why my jeep sucks so bad is because the guys at Chrysler must be drunk at work. Doesn't seem quite as funny now....

Get your facts straight idiots...
Unions are the leaders in the industry on Drug Testing Policies.
All have mandatory drug testing , for cause and random in their contracts.
All work places have people who violate the law and policies.
I am a Superintendent at a Union shop. By contract, it is easier for me to fire a person than it is for a typical chain retailer... my wife is management at one of those.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Prosperity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Well, got to hand it to those guys. To drink and smoke during a lunch break, then head back to work.. I'd be interested to see what a real party looks like.

In my opinion, I don't give a damn about their behavior. Its more funny then a concern. Given, the media is going to spin it about Obama and Chrysler and the workers laughing in our faces while taking bailout money to keep the production lines going.

They'll be dealt with.

Well, yes, I'm sure that's true to some extent. I work at the national headquarters of a major automotive manufacturer with approximately 700 people working here. While I'm sure there a few or even some that toke and drink a bit too much and may show up to work with bad hangovers, what we don't have is hoards of people standing in our parking lot at lunch time pounding down 40 ouncers and sparking fatties.

FIRE THESE IDIOTS! I saw the video on the news and can't believe how dumb! They're lucky to even be drawing a paycheck and they wanna make it a party. I guess their lives are SHIT anyways, so why not fuck it all up worse right? I had to do a random piss test the other day- no biggie, so i keep my job and pay taxes to put back into the hands of these cocksuckers!

I hope the next time they go to wipe their asses at home the toilet paper ran out because they got fired and spent their last pay stub on booze and a one-hitter! Have fun lickin your fingers clean!

........i need a but i'm at work

With the exception of "buying Chinese," which was more out of frustration than fiscal advice, it's not. Teachers have to sodomize a child to get fired, a lot of iron workers are shitfaced the whole shift, and these clowns are building cars and only get fired because it's going to make the new Chrysler look bad, especially since the billions of dollars from the government paid for those tall boys and 40 oz's.

I don't see why you guys are all up in arms about this. Nothing will happen to them. They might not be able to go back to the plant, but they will still be able to collect their checks. They will just be sitting home smoking and drinking instead of building the e disco's for rubi's.


Unions are like dingleberrys. They stink and they are harder than hell to get rid of.

this is ridiculous. i know ill probably get yelled at for this, but if it were a stupid part time job (such as a restaurant) and this happened. eh w/e, as long as the jobs getting done and people are happy.

but these asshats are building motor fucking vehicles. things ppl trust to work properly when used properly. their lives depend on it. fire all and stop their pay immediately.

you can joke about how it explains the shitty quality, but its definitely true. that and general incompetence. these are just the people that were stupid enough to get caught. there are probably others.

oh, and there are plenty of ways around drug tests. im pretty sure some kind of notice is given (24-48 hours) and depending on the user, things can be done to pass a screening. even if there is no notice, drug tests cost money and time and are more often than not given only for pre-employment screening or if there have been problems on the job.

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.
