Why bossnappings and France are like baguette and brie

"This is [France's] version of civil disobedience," says Lowell Turner, director of The Worker Institute at Cornell University, and the tactic, he says, gets a tremendous amount of public support. That makes sense, considering how well bossnappings fit into France's long history of civil defiance, which dates back to the French Revolution, says Turner, who studies labor in Europe and the U.S. In the ongoing battle between workers and large multinational corporations, French people's social and political instincts lead them to side with the workers, he says.
