And your point on the CEO/executives is moot, because I personally feel the rule should apply to them as well...and them exempting themselves doesn't make the rule any less practical.
    I really don't disagree as much as you might think.

    It's more the principle of the thing.

    And an anti-union activists home video shouldn't be grounds for dismissal. Sets a real bad precedent. Would it stand as "proof" in a court of law?

I was invited to 2 of them, and they were both celebrations of drunkenness. For your information, Texas Instruments is NOT a union company.


    Of course, this thread, and article that accompanies it, is an attack on unions, and an attempt by FOX News to demonize them. When you consider the fact that FOX News is not a legitimate news organization, but the propaganda arm of the Republican party, articles like this are to be expected.
    I just cannot believe they fall for it. I mean half the people watching faux are probably slurping down a beer as they do it and not realizing that fox is trying to get them angry over something they are doing at that moment and should be allowed to do as responsible adults. Maybe faux news fans support prohibition?

    You have no information on how many beers or joints were used so to defend drunk or high employees is wrong.

    Where did you get your perspective that it is OK to be intoxicated on the job, any job?
    If I have no information then you have no information. the people who do have the information hired them back so what does that say to you? It says to me they were fired as an overreaction and their work was not effected therefor they were reinstated. had they been fall down drunk they would have been indefensible and they would still be out of a job. o please do not tell me that i have no information so you must be right on the same lack of information. At least my ideas are supported by the resolution.

    So, what, people who drink on the job should never be allowed to have any job again ever?

    Well by all means please show us where the Obama administration used those exact words.

    I watched the video and the reporter was so sure they were drunk driving that he didn't call the police. So he caught some guys taking a break and alcohol and pot burn off pretty fast if you don't drink a lot which they did not. An hour from that break they would be clean sober. They were not drunk, they were not high. They were not even really buzzed. They were just relaxed on their break. You know what? I bet they work hard to make those cars so take a good break and relax, you did a job that was hard work. yes, I am on that guys side, and yeah he deserves his job back.

    So we the taxpayers bail out the unions car companies, employees are caught drinking on their lunch break, going back to work under the influence, are fired and now they get their jobs back? And some wonder why anyone has a problem with unions?
    Its between them and their employer and is none of my business. I didnt support the bailout and still dont. That said what they do between themselves is none of my affair. If they were my employees or contractors they wouldnt be back due to poor judgement. They are not my employees. So I am not worring about it.

    They were not doing it on the job. It was lunch break. A somewhat extenuating circumstance. If they were caught "on the job," it would be a different story.

    At those levels it does not interfere with life, it makes it more robust. As long as it does not impair their production I am all for it. Yes you can drink a forty in an hour and be completely sober and reacting fine. Fine to do a job you do a whole lot so you know all about it. I bet those guys could probably do their jobs high as a kite. but they certainly would not have been high as a kite on that. Take it from me I am an admitted drug taker. I have been on what they were on and they really are just singing themselves a tune at work. That is fine by me.
