first_imgA French textile company is under fire for offering to relocate laid off workers to India with a 96% pay cut.Carreman, which employs 150 people in Castres, France, offered nine terminated employees the option to “relocate” to their Bangalore plant at a monthly salary of $96, compared to the French legal minimum salary of $1,850.Industry groups denounced the cynical offer as “shameful, humiliating, sadistic, and unacceptable,” while the country’s Industry Minister termed it a “provocation” and “profoundly shocking.”In its defense, Carreman director Francois Morel said the company is obligated under French law to offer terminated employees the option to work at another company plant: “I know it’s stupid. But that’s the stupidity of the law.” Related Itemslast_img

A lot of confidence, within our country and within our team, swirls around. “We are looking forward to this tournament and to the fact that we have had great success in this format over the last 18 months. There was a hiccup against Australia (team lost 1-2 after leading 1-0), but lots of positives emerged too,” he said. Asked whether there had been any pep talks within the group, he said there have been some but it all becomes irrelevant unless the performance on the field follows. “Within the squad we have had good conversation and the understanding of whats needed to play well in these conditions. You can have all the talk, but its performance on the field that counts.” He agreed that the connection many South African cricketers have with the Indian Premier League is beneficial to play in the conditions here but at the same time the opposition is varied. “Its always advantageous when you are playing in these kinds of tournaments and in these conditions. But the difference here is you will be playing certain teams in these conditions. “You wont necessarily be playing a lot of spin like against India or when you play in IPL. You have to understand what the opposition strategy would be against you in these conditions and be prepared for it,” Duminy said. The South African said he looked forward to bowl on Indian tracks. “I do enjoy bowling on Indian wickets. I know thats going to potentially bring a lot of opportunities for me especially in these conditions. Hopefully I can, given those opportunities, will make them count.” PTI SSR RSY SSC SSC SREadvertisementlast_img

When the big games come, you know who’s going to be playing.”Rumours of an unsettled dressing-room at the Allianz Arena have increased in the past week, with Bayern’s recent performances and the uncertainty around Ancelotti’s future drawing criticism from former players including Mario Basler and Stefan Effenberg.Ancelotti has been tipped to move to the Chinese Super League as soon as January, although the former Madrid boss has denied any such agreement has been reached.Bayern continue their title defence against Mainz on Saturday.last_img
