THIS IS THE SECOND TIME IN A WEEK WORKERS IN FRANCE THREATEN TO BLOW UP A BUILDING DUE TO WAGE/JOB CUTS!!!!!

You have been warned this might come to America if we keep bailing out banks and not mainstreet....courtesy of Zero Hedge!!!!

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.

No immediate comment was available from Toronto-based Nortel, once the largest North American telecommunications equipment manufacturer but which filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada and the United States in January.

The workers were also bitter about the way the authorities handling the case in France were proceeding, the paper said.

“We are exasperated by the practices of the administrator. A meeting was planned yesterday, but it was cancelled at the last minute,” the paper cited one union member as saying on Tuesday.

“It is not the first time. They have been stringing us along for four days. They have no respect for us,” the union member said.

Speaking on LCI television, Labour Minister Xavier Darcos pledged to find solutions for the workers.

“We are going to speak to each other, we will find solutions that do not require resorting to extreme violence,” he said.

When you can't feed yourself or your family, and there is no way to generate an income, the human being will do anything to save the lives of the ones they love.

IN the US these workers would've been already rounded up and arrested as terrorists.
