Angry French workers turn to kidnapping bosses

Watch your back...

It's the second so-called "bossnapping" in a week.On Tuesday, the revolutionary French union members stormed the suburban Paris office of 3M company plant director Luc Rousselet and barricaded him inside.The French workers had their berets in a bunch over the amount of severance they were to be given under the layoff deal, in which 110 of 235 staffers were cut from the pharmaceutical firm's factory.They grabbed Rousselet when he arrived at the plant 60 miles outside Paris to talk about the severance.The workers refused to release Rousselet until the Minnesota-based industrial giant agreed to talks. He was still being held as of last night.
