Man Has His Boss Killed By Colombian Hitmen to Avoid Being Sacked

 

Spain: Police have arrested a man for allegedly hiring six Colombians to kill his boss because he feared he would be laid off in a company restructure. His sister, who allegedly acted as a go-between, and the Colombians, have been arrested.

The murder of this employer marks the latest in a series of increasingly desperate acts carried out by people fearful of losing their employment in the rapidly worsening depression.

Other extreme reactions to the worsening conditions include a construction firm head who threatened to torch himself unless people who owed him money paid up, and a builder who held his bank manager at gunpoint.

  Correction  
 
9 ppl were taken off the workforce, I just read the source and realized the boss was actually killed.

  Unclear on the concept  
 
"include a construction firm head who threatened to torch himself unless people who owed him money paid up"

Can I get the dealership I bought my car from to torch itself too? I'm sick of making this payment every month.
