French daily Le Parisien said on Wednesday the workers had placed gas cylinders in front of the plant in the Yvelines area near Paris, where 480 jobs are set to be axed following bankruptcy proceedings.
In the second threat by French workers to blow up a factory in a week, the paper said the workers had threatened to stage an explosion as early as Wednesday if their demands were not met, but said the gas cylinders were empty.
Hmmm, I wonder if the Government Motors, oops! General Motors bailout will set a dangerous precedent putting taxpayers all on the hook for good retirement and layoff terms for anyone and everyone who is about to lose their job.
