Things to Come?

CEO murdered by sacked workers. No, not in the United States, but in India.

Wow... if that don't send a chill up CEO's spines everywhere.

Corporate India is in shock after a mob of workers bludgeoned to death the chief executive who sacked them from a factory in a suburb of Delhi.

Lalit Kishore Choudhary, 47, the head of the Indian operations of Graziano Transmissioni, a manufacturer of car parts that has its headquarters in Italy, died of severe head wounds on Monday after being attacked by scores of laid-off employees, police said. The incident, in Greater Noida, followed a long-running dispute between the factory’s management and workers demanding better pay and permanent contracts.

Sign of the times?

Heh, saw that one yesterday, SoS. Maybe if we could do it here instead of giving them billion dollar bonuses??

Don't worry SoS. If striking workers get a little restless here the gubmint will just turn the military on us.
