Once Again the French Have Surrendered
The French government has decided not to follow through with it's law to allow employers to fire young employees at will. The people of France saw this as an errosion of their rights in the socialist welfare state of France. They believe that it is the employers job to provide them with safe secure employement and that the employer shouldn't expect them to come to work on time or to stay a full shift or do the work assigned to them or do much of anything. It's all quite 'progressive.'Xinhua
French President Jacques Chirac announced Monday to replace a key provision of the First Employment Contract (CPE), a decision hailed as a victory by French trade unions.
