"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."
More stimulus money waste and fraud has been exposed by Target 8 News in Holland, MI as their undercover investigation reveals workers at an LG Chem car battery plant were paid to play monopoly, poker and sudoku or to clean the parking lot. Workers confessed on camera that here just wasn't anything to do at the plant celebrated and trumpeted by President Obama as an example of his economic success in re-orienting American manufacturing toward a green-jobs future.
