35 Employees Committed Suicide. Will Their Bosses Go to Jail?
After a wave of worker suicides under their management, former executives at France Télécom have been charged with the crime of “moral harassment.”
This is so heartbreaking. Makes me wonder when we'll have the promised future with UBI so this does not have to be a problem, and the robots can serve our every whim.
"So the executives resolved to make life so unbearable that the workers would leave, prosecutors say. Instead, at least 35 employees — workers’ advocates say nearly double that number — committed suicide, feeling trapped, betrayed and despairing of ever finding new work in France’s immobile labor market."Posted on 2019-07-10T06:38:08+0000
