Ok. So much for being civilized. This is sad. I have no clue why those employees were so pissed off. Anyway, I had my own doubts about the authenticity of this news. So, I googled for ‘Gradiano’. Interestingly, I couldn’t find the company’s website at all. There’s news about this incident all around but no info about what the company was into, what grade of employees were working there etc. Hmmm… Wierd…
