Because of unfavorable employment conditions, an employee of France Telecom has tried to commit suicide yesterday, but was rescued in time, according to L’Express.
In the past two years, 24 employees of the telecommunications company took their lives because of stress at work.
The 54 years old employee has attempted suicide in his home in Marseille. The man was depressed and had been very affected by the suicide of one of his colleagues in July. He sent a message to the family announcing that he wanted to end his life. Fortunately, firefighters managed to save him.
The telecommunications company is hit by a wave of suicides among employees, related to problems facing society and the enormous pressure faced by employees.
