CEO Bludgeoned to Death in India by Fired Employees (Can Barney Frank be next please?)
This story ran in late September 2008, but I find it even more relevant today than before. You can take the title above as is and perform a search and the story will come up. The opening couple of paragraphs read as:
Corporate India is in shock after a mob of recently fired workers bludgeoned to death the chief executive who had dismissed them from a factory in a suburb of Delhi.
Lalit Kishore Choudhary, 47, the head of the Indian operations of Graziano Transmissioni, an Italy-based manufacturer of car parts, died of severe head wounds Monday afternoon after being attacked by scores of laid-off employees, police said.
Back in the ’90s and during the opening years of 2000, the United States, and the world, too, no doubt, outsourced just about anything it could.
With the GSE meltdown, the subsequent drop in everyone’s 401K and watching some CEOs walk away from their orchestrated fiasco with millions of dollars in bonuses, to say sentiment in the U.S. toward these events and CEOs is disgusting falls a bit short of accuracy.
I wonder if the U.S. can outsource CEO flogging to India. I feel pretty confident saying we probably have a pent-up demand right now.
My first nominee would be Barney Frank, but something tells me he would actually like it and scream like a little girl.
Just a thought.
