What does job security in France mean anyway? The government guarantees that you have Johns?
While complacent, lazy, fat and useless Americans bemoan the unending rounds of job layoffs so that other lazy, fat and useless corporate overlords can reap wild profits via outsourcing them, it seems we’re down to the French to show the U.S. who’s the wussy now.
This striking news report today from Paris details French demonstrators marching for job security and pay raises from elitist government and corporate leaders:
“Hundreds of thousands of teachers, nurses, factory workers and plumbers marched through French cities on Thursday to demand pay rises and protection for jobs.
The demonstrations were the high point of a nationwide one-day strike called by France's eight main trade unions to try to persuade President Nicolas Sarkozy and business leaders to do more to help ordinary people overcome the economic crisis.”
Liberté, égalité, mais FUCK fraternité!!
