Occupy Wall Street? The French take proletariat strife to new levels. Recently, in a French company, exasperated workers just locked the boss up. It is apparently a trend among disgruntled French workers (at FNAC, Siemens, Caterpiller, Molex). I love the title of one article analyzing the subject in Le Monde: "Les séquestrations de patron sont-elles "efficaces"? (Is boss confinement "effective"?) In clear doubt is how the term "effective" is being employed (or better, why?). I appreciated Xavier's take on the approach when he read the article and chuckled: "Don't they get it? A poorly performing CEO or boss should be kicked out, not retained." Sacrés Français.
