$14.3 billion in bailout money goes to Chrysler so they can keep paying UAW workers to drink, get high on the job

A Detroit television station caught a bunch of auto workers red-handed:

Dozens of autoworkers in Detroit were caught on camera drinking beer and smoking marijuana before heading to work at the Chrysler plant that President Obama praised in a speech just two months ago.

An exclusive investigation by MyFoxDetroit showed workers at Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, Mich., drinking beer and smoking joints while on a half-hour lunch break at a nearby park.

The investigation — conducted over several weeks and based on tips from workers at the plant — outraged the auto giant’s top executives who reportedly called the behavior “totally unacceptable.”

There’s video of all this at the link. So what are the odds that Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., head of the Committee on Education and Labor, holds hearings on this? I’d venture the chances of that happening range from none to zero.
