Suicide Wave at France Telecom

The paper on the gate says "Suicides + Attempts of Suicide = Jobs gone."

Since the beginning of 2008 the number of suicides at France Telecom have added to 22! Next to this 13 employees of France Telecom have attempted suicide in the same period. Last week an employee attempted suicide by stabbing himself in the gut with a knife after being demoted. The union suspects the high work pressure and constant restructuring is the reason, I bet the atmosphere at work wasn't too great either. Let's all celebrate capitalism...

Gee, the PTBs don't have some sort of mind control weapon pointed at the place do they? Are these poor people guinea pigs or what?

I find that a 'pandemic' of suicides is hard to believe, no matter what kind of economy we're supposedly having!

Peace bro!
