Workers in Paris are pissed again about supposedly terrible working conditions. I was just over there last September and working conditions really didn’t seem that bad to me. We went to the Eiffel Tower and as best I can tell, there weren’t a lot of rocket scientists necessary to make things work around that place. I’m not sure it follows that higher ticket prices necessarily means higher salaries. Oh and that whole taking your boss hostage because you think you’re being treated unfairly at work? I don’t think that’s going to work out the way you think it might. Though on second thought, if enough employees took their bosses hostage to protest job cuts, said bosses probably could stop making job cuts after all said employees got arrested and thrown in jail.
This is why France, beautiful and wonderful though the country itself may be, will always be a parasite on the world market. What person in their right mind would want to start a business in a country where workers take their bosses hostage when the entire global economy turns south? That maybe the most idiotic, selfish thing I’ve ever heard.
