    HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) - 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.

    "There would be up to 40 of us that would just sit in there during the day," said former LG Chem employee Nicole Merryman, who said she may quit in May.

    "We were given assignments to go outside and clean; if we weren't cleaning outside, we were cleaning inside. If there was nothing for us to do, we would study in the cafeteria, or we would sit and play cards, sit and read magazines," said Merryman. "It's really sad that all these people are sitting there and doing nothing, and it's basically on taxpayer money."

    Isn't that the truth. Can't send 'em home. Against union rules.
