Will we be following in their footsteps ??

A million on strike as France feels pinch

• Protesters say Sarkozy has done too little for workers
• Minister insists reform programme will continue




More than one million French workers downed tools yesterday in the first general strike to hit a major industrialised nation since the start of the global financial crisis.Unions said more than two million public and private sector workers took to the streets across France to protest against President Nicolas Sarkozy's handling of the economic crisis, saying too much had been done to bail out fat cats and banks, and not enough to protect jobs and help workers make ends meet.

I think they're trying to "glutton up enough money" to ensure that their tax liability is sufficent to prevent your check from bouncing. Pretty selfish, eh?

Yes, and I think part of the reason is because of their ability to unify, despite political differences.

Ever heard of divide and concer ?

Can you see how divided this country is between R and D ???

Untill we get over this sandbox hissy fit mentality that has been harboured in the US,
we are not going to solve the mess we have ourselves in.

Keep up the great bi partison bull, maybe you will stop when you loose your job, car, house, and finally see what it has done to you.

Open your eyes and wake up, the wolf is at the door !!!!
