15 factory workers for Chrysler have been suspended indefinitely after a Fox 2 news report showed them drinking and smoking weed on their lunch break.
The segment, which was inspired by a tip from a coworker at the plant, shows reporter Rob Wolchek approaching a group of workers, who appear to be drinking beer and smoking an unknown substance.
“Hey, guys I hate to be a buzzkill, but shouldn’t you be building cars?“ Wolcheck asks.
After the rhetorical question, the men notice the cameras and are seen scattering and jumping in their vehicles before peeling away and heading back to work.
“The workers were observed in the park day after day,“ Wolchek reports.
After footage of the video hit the internet and local news stations in Detroit, Chrysler’s senior vice president of manufacturing Scott Garberding decided to address the issue and reassure the public that the “few” in the video do not represent the many hard workers at the plant.
“I’m very, very disturbed about what I just saw in the video”, Garberding told WSJ in an interview. “I want to make it clear that we at Chrysler take it very seriously. For us this behavior is totally unacceptable and will be dealt with swiftly. In fact, we’ve already identified a few of the people involved in this incident. Each of them has been suspended indefinitely, without pay, pending further investigation. We’ll continue to pursue this in fact, until we’re done. “
