    France always had a penchant for revolution, and their new response to corporate layoffs is also an interesting thing:

    After beeing successfull with some boss-napping, workers in france now threaten to blow up their firm if they wont get a payoff.

    Since the 16. of June, around 300 workers are occupying a factory in Ch√Ętellerault, 1.5 auto hours from paris.
    Unless they get a pay off of 30.000 Euro per person (that they are apperantly entitled to via their contracts), they threaten to blow up the factory, which still has modern equipment belonging to other firms in it.
    The equipment is supposed to be worth between 1 and 2 million dollars.

    Reminds me of the old samurai mugger skit:

    'Give me your money or I will kill myself'
