Wage Payments a Bust

VORONEZH, Southern Russia -- Managers of a struggling Russian industrial plant haven't been able to pay workers in rubles -- so they are paying them in bras instead, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported Tuesday.

The unconventional reimbursement was offered recently by the Enikmash machine-building plant in Voronezh.

Enikmash apparently had traded some of its industrial product, which is in low demand, for a shipment of Chinese-made bras.
