Now this is in the manufacturing sector, but I wonder what the laid off Wall Street back office workers in India are thinking right now?
Lalit Kishore Choudhary, 47, the head of the Indian operations of Graziano Transmissioni, an Italian-headquartered manufacturer of car parts, died of severe head wounds on Monday afternoon after being attacked by scores of laid-off employees, police said.
The incident, in Greater Noida, just outside the Indian capital, followed a long-running dispute between the factory’s management and workers who had demanded better pay and permanent contracts.
It is understood that Mr Choudhary, who was married with one son, had called a meeting with more than 100 former employees – who had been dismissed following an earlier outbreak of violence at the plant – to discuss a possible reinstatement deal.
