Napad na delavske pravice v Franciji

Ker mednarodna solidarnost šteje, delimo spodnji, zelo poveden zapis: o spremembah delovnopravne zakonodaje v Franciji oziroma o napadu na pravice francoskih delavk in delavcev, ki poteka pod pokroviteljstvom predsednika Emmanuela Macrona.

The changes to the country’s voluminous labor code are part of a broad push by President Emmanuel Macron to revive growth and steer France toward a Scandinavian-style economic model known as “flexible security.” But the initial imbalance between employers’ rights and workers’ protections means the economic picture could get worse before it gets better. 

Unemployment, persistently stuck at more than 9 percent for nearly a decade, could rise in the coming months. Unions, already dubious of the overhaul, may grow impatient if the government doesn’t follow through on its promises to workers.

“Right now it’s flexibility, and no security,” said Jean-Paul Fitoussi, an economics professor at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris. “Companies will do everything they can under the new law to maximize flexibility and facilitate the firing of people.”
