    French firm asks staff to move India or lose job

    A French textile firm has caused outrage by telling nine of its workers that they have the choice between the sack and redeploying to an Indian factory and taking a gigantic pay-cut.

    Carreman told its workers at a plant in the southwestern town of Castres that it would offer them pay of 69 euros (92 dollars) a month if they moved to Bangalore, union officials said at the weekend.

    The minimum legal monthly salary in France is 1,321 euros.Francois Morel, the boss of the factory, told a local paper that before being allowed to lay off the workers he was obliged to offer them work elsewhere in the group under legal requirements which he described as "stupid."

    CGT union official Edmond Andreu that the offer had provoked "anger mixed with stupefaction" among workers at the factory, who say it is obvious no-one will take up the proposition.

    Workers at the Bangalore factory are paid the equivalent of 69 euros a month for working a six-day week, and get an annual bonus of a month's pay as well as medical insurance.The nine Castres workers were also offered free plane tickets and a 1,000-euro bonus for moving.
