France Contemplates At Will Employment
Could it be? Truth be told, the proposal would only affect the youngest workers, but what is shocking is that France is seeming to grasp that companies would be more willing to hire employees were they less hampered by regulation, specifically, had they the ability to hire and fire at will, something we just barely recognize here in the States.
This drastic measure, known as the First Employment Contract, is only being considered in the face of a French national unemployment rate for young workers of 23% with an impoverished subsector unemployed at a rate of 50%.
Actually, this story is about rioting taking place as a result of the proposal, riots involving the same youth who are enjoying the 23% and 50% jobless rates. I'm sure I wouldn't want to hire anyone from this bunch of greasy, destructive, pre-alcoholic (it is France, of course), leftist parasites either.
(As an aside, it's fun to see some French guys in militaristic garb. They don't actually have guns or anything, but it's a start.)
