French workers 'face sack or two pounds a day' at company's Indian factory - Telegraph
French workers have been given the choice by their boss of either being sacked or earning two pounds per day at the company's Indian factory.

Nine employees at the Carreman textiles plant in Castres, southwestern France, were told they could continue working for the firm on condition they relocated to Bangalore and accepted a monthly salary of as little as 53 euros (£48).

Under the proposal that unions blasted as "scandalous", the workers would also be required to work eight-hour days, six days a week - instead of the current five.
