"Bossnappings" all the rage in France

Did your boss announce layoffs or pay cuts?

Want to do something about it?

You could always consider holding him hostage for 24-hrs like the French.

From the Guardian:

Over a hundred striking workers were last night holding a French executive hostage at a health products plant in the latest in a trend of “bossnappings”. Luc Rousselet, the French director of the US company 3M, had been held captive since arriving at the plant in Poithievers south of Paris for a visit on Tuesday. Staff took turns to guard him over 24 hours while demanding better severance packages for laid-off staff and better conditions for those remaining… Taking a boss hostage is becoming an increasingly common protest gesture in France.
