Held American workers feet to the fire there -- those FedEx workers throwing Christmas presents in the bush is.
Yeah instead delivering them remember that we should do that and here are Michigan factory workers drinking beer and smoking.
On their lunch break the -- get down on it that's a lot of work on on their.
But American workers just don't stack up to French workers in the goofing off and mailing it in department the CEO of an American tire company found this out.

He spent time at a factory and I'm -- I'm not sure announcing -- right here's -- I visited the factory a couple of times a French workforce gets paid high wages what works only three hours.
They get one hour for breaks and lunch talk for three and work for three.

He -- the popular breakfast treat that he couldn't keep in stock because it would sell out in minutes to supporting customers who arrived later in the day.
So now instead of ordering more or making it himself he's stopped selling the tree.
Just like France he didn't get it.
