US CEO Won't Operate A Business In France Because Those Lazy French Only Work 3 Hours/Day February 21, 2013

Maurice Taylor, the CEO of Titan, was asked to take over operations for a failing Goodyear plant in Amiens, France.

He politely told the requester to go pound sand, because the French are a bunch of lazy bastards.

Well, that's not quite how he put it.

"I have visited that factory a couple of times. The French workforce gets paid high wages but only works three hours," Mr Taylor wrote in a letter to Arnaud Montebourg... "They get one hour for breaks and lunch, talk for three and work for three. I told this to the French union workers to their faces. They told me that's the French way!"

The French way? Maybe we should consider a relocation. It would give us more time for blogging. Who says that a welfare state can't be good for a conservative cause?
