Workers kill CEO in retaliation for death of Union Leader

Workers at the Regency Ceramics factory in the India raided the home of their boss, and beat him senseless with led pipes after a wage dispute turned ugly.

The workers were enraged enough to kill president K. C. Chandrashekhar after their union leader, M. Murali Mohan, was killed by baton-wielding riot police on Thursday. The labor violence occurred in Yanam, a small city in Andra Pradesh state on India’s east coast. Police were called to the factory by management to quell a labor dispute. The workers had been calling for higher pay and reinstatement of previously laid off workers since October. Murali was fired a few hours later. The next morning, at 06:00 on Friday, Murali went to the factory along with some workers and tried to obstruct the morning shift, local media reported. Long batons, known as lathis in India, were used by police who charged the workers, injuring at least 20 of them, including Murali. He died on the way to hospital, according to The Times of India. Hundreds of workers gathered outside the police station and demanded that officers be charged with homicide.

...

Once news of Murali’s death spread, the factory workers allegedly destroyed 50 company cars, buses and trucks and lit them on fire. They ransacked the factory. Residents joined hands with around 600 workers, while others were enroute to Chandrashekhar’s house.


Shit's getting real in India. Apparently there is word of a mass strike that could possibly involve tens of thousands - even millions - of people.

edit: Or on Friday, even. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/232831.stm

India factory workers are the lowest paid within the big four emerging markets. Per capita income in India is under $4,000 a year, making it the poorest country in the BRICs despite its relatively booming economy.


The next person who tells me 'certain' government parties are great because 'what's good for the economy is good for everybody" get a kick in the fucking face.
I hope all the cheap labour countries start pulling shit like this. We'll pay some more for our plastics and electronics, big deal.

If I'm present and I see someone kill a CEO, I'll put 'em in the hospital. Simple as that.

IMO folks who abuse CEOs rank right up there with pedofiles, rapists, and serial killers.

Maybe it's a cultural difference but if you guys down there think it's cool to abuse CEOs, then your culture is majorly fucked. Studies show folks who kill and torture CEOs do all sorts of fucked up shit.

Dunno. From his original thread asking for info on NZ it sounded like he was pretty set to come here ie a lot of money dropped on visa applications/police checks etc. Would be pretty hilarious/shit if he convinced his wife not to come due to the idiocy of PunkAs.

Repost.

Actually, since all I seem to do in current affairs is talk to the bots.. I'll add something else. Anyone read Cory Doctorow's "for the win"? It's YA Fiction, but it's still a pretty wicked read, and it's all about worker exploitation in these areas. It's a little gold-farming focused, but he does a pretty good job of covering off the factory worker's plight. Doctorow makes his books electronically available for free under creative commons too, so go get it.
