    DETROIT - Chrysler says it has suspended some plant workers caught by a Detroit television station drinking alcohol and smoking what appeared to be marijuana during breaks.

    Chrysler manufacturing chief Scott Garberding told WJBK-TV in a report that aired Wednesday night that the automaker has identified some of the workers.

    WJBK said it received a tip from a worker at Chrysler's Jefferson North plant and followed about a dozen men for 10 days during their lunch breaks. It filmed them going to a convenience store to buy alcohol and taking it to a nearby park to drink and smoke.

    Garberding says the workers' "behaviour is totally unacceptable." The United Auto Workers said it strongly opposes the use of alcohol or controlled substances on the job.

    THIS is what my tax dollars went for? And the unions still don't get why their labor force and membership is not wanted.

    At least those in the executive suite never see anything like alcohol use during lunch!

    How fucking stupid do you have to be to put a $65/hr job in play for some beer at lunch? These guys deserve to get fired, not suspended.
