Labor Uprising in France

Massive labor actions have been roiling France, as unions protest the policies of the nominally Socialist government. What’s that all about?

Bush‘, Kyklosproductions, 2006.

    This is extremely thin. George and Rasmus spend their time discussing general European economic policy without even mentioning how European socialist parties have been hemmed in by the Eurozone and Eurozone framework, attributing it all to “a global tendency.” They also say very little about the actual labour actions in France–their scope, popular support, odds of success etc.
