Just finished watching an episode of "Enquete Exclusive" produced by the French TV channel M6. I have to say I was really impressed with how Japanese businesses train their employees. The dedication and discipline required are not something you witness very often in a Western company. I guess this is partially why Japan produces quality products everyone wants.
On a side note, a local TV station in Detroit did a report about workers at Chrysler plan going out during lunch breaks to consume alcohol.
Francophone members, you can catch the episode here in case you missed it.
