If you don't live in Germany you might be unaware that Volkswagen has been involved in a major bribery scandal of its union leaders. A couple of execs have already resigned amid allegations of accepting bribes and setting up front companies to help VW secure contracts abroad. News is now coming out of Germany that VW was using a company jet to fly work council members all over the world. A German newspaper even claims that highclass hookers were aboard the jet and that gentleman on the plane were given "vouchers" worth up to $35,000 to pay for them. VW has secured auditor KPMG to investigate the accusations, but it refuses to comment on internal matters.
