    U.S. Grant Funded Workers

    "U.S. Grant Funded Workers' Play at LG Chem Factory" Ryan Tracy, WSJ, 2-14-13

    "The Obama administration's electric car efforts took another hit on Wednesday after a federal inspection found a South Korean advanced battery maker never scaled up U.S. production despite receiving $142 million in federal grants....

    The inspector general said that to avoid layoffs at the factory LG Chem paid idle workers $1.6 million in the third quarter of last year, about half of which was covered by its U.S. grant, even though there was nothing for them to do. The workers played board games, watched movies, and volunteered at local animal shelters during regular work hours, Mr. Friedman said...."

    And so it goes.
