    Burning up their country and destroying public property, in a country where unemployment hovers at near 10%, higher for youths:

    So much for springtime in Paris :trolls:

    Here we have the culmination of decades of Socialism coming back to bite them on their French behinds :moon4:
    The government is trying to fix unemployment, and create an atmosphere that would allow France to improve productivity and actually compete with the global economy.

    If they put that much effort in their jobs perhaps they wouldn't have to worry about job security.

    I think it IS a tad unfair to only allow young workers to be fired. Incompetence occurs at all ages. Just like with the social security system here, the leaders know that the votes are in placating the elderly. Screw our children. Welcome to the New WOrld ORder.

    Of course I'm advocating the fair restructure of employement law for all age groups. I believe the government will hold firm on this one. The system has to break somewhere. Screw the kids. Oldies get to keep their perks. This is obscene.

    On one hand, these manifesations show the interest of youthes to the politic and the ability to have a democratic life and a liberty of expression....

    But most of the people on the street were not really informed, didn't really know what the CPE was. They were manipulated by a fistfull of leaders and politicians.

    I really wish that in 2007 a liberal president will be elected.

    There is 2 France now : the France of the street, with youthes refusing globalizaton and liberalism, and the France of the entrerpises, with excellent companies and strong groups, with a good economy.

    Our social model was excellent durong the 60's-70's, now it's time to change to make it more flexible and allow more liberty for the enterprises' leaders.
