While most of us in the auto industry toil away giving Powerpoint presentations in boring conference rooms and staying in cheap hotels, the fun-lovin' folks over at Volkswagen have allegedly been having more than their fair share of fun. Not content with mundane acts of embezzlement, bribery, and kickbacks, some officials at the automaker may have taken leaders of German labor unions on "sex junkets" in Brazil and then falsified expense reports to pay for them. One can imagine that such tactics would perhaps have a chance of breaking the labor/management logjam here in the US, but then again Ron Gettlefinger doesn't look like the sort of guy who'd be partying it up with a bunch of South American prostitutes.
