U.S. executive Chip Starnes speaks to reporters through a barred window on Tuesday. The co-owner of a medical supplies firm based in Florida has been held hostage at this Beijing, China plant since Friday over a pay dispute. Dozens of workers here claim they are owed severance packages after rumours the plant was shutting down. Starnes said he has no plans to close up shop as he did with a plastics division that was moved to India.
