Violence des échanges en milieu tempéré, by J.M Moutout


Philippe Seigner, charming and freshly graduated from business school, starts his career in consulting at the posh Paris seat of McGregor. His first serious task is delicate one, an audit at the Janson food cans factory in the provinces, which is about to be taken over. As he soon realized, this will mean sacking about 80 employees, as his boss Hugo Paradis knew from the start. However, his Paris girl reproaches him collaborating with ruthless capitalism, as if any downsizing could be stopped or mitigated by him bowing out. Nevertheless, as he gets to know the threatened staff better he considers risking his career when his boss orders, him to choose who should go. Meanwhile the factory staff starts realizing what’s about to happen.
