Bored battery-makers stuck playing Monopoly unless we buy Chevy Volts10/20/2012
Employees at LG Chem, a company that makes lithium-ion batteries, would love something to do. Seriously. They're bored because despite the fact they work for a company that makes batteries, they haven't actually made any. Employees at the Michigan plant, which is funded by more than $300 million from taxpayers, say they spend their days playing cards, watching movies or cleaning. When the company was conceived, it was envisioned that employees would be making 15 million cells per year for the Chevy Volt. Sadly, sales for the Volt aren't meeting expectations. So in the meantime, workers have been given "assignments" such as cleaning … that is, when they're not playing Monopoly. Sounds like a job that gets old quick. [Source]
