Car Workers Hold Boss




MOSCOW -- About 100 women workers at a Siberian auto factory took their boss hostage to demand their wages, some of which are a year and a half overdue, Interfax reported.


The workers at the Ulan-Ude Auto Factory locked director Leonid Belykh in his office Monday and continued to hold him Tuesday, Interfax said.


Belykh told the women the wage delays were a result of debts by the Defense Ministry, which owes the factory 48 million rubles ($2.4 million at Thursday's official rate) for back orders.
