“Workers at a crisis-hit boiler factory in France have stripped off for a nude calendar in a bid to save 204 jobs slated for redundancy.

 
Staff at the Chaffoteaux et Maury factory in Brittany will use the proceeds to fund a trip to Italy where they plan to stage a protest at their parent company, Ariston Thermo Group (ATG), which pulled the plug on the site earlier this year.”

When a company shuts down operations Americans just grin and bear it, but the French will go to great lengths to try to save their jobs. French workers have threatened to blow up factories and pollute the Seine river.
 
I wouldn’t strip to save my job; I don’t think that would engender any sympathy for my cause. I hope the French factory workers are very attractive, it will make it easier for them to sell their calendars.
 
Let’s hope the company’s CEO changes his mind, his employees obviously love their jobs and I’m sure they are excellent workers.
