Police deployed tear gas against rioting protesters in Lyon, Tuesday, as hundreds demonstrated against French President Emmanuel Macron's planned labour law reforms. The changes to the Labour Code announced in August, have been met with disapproval of French labour unions who subsequently called for mass demonstrations and strikes to prevent further measures. The government’s new measures are... Еще set to make it easier for small and medium sized companies to hire and fire workers, and will hand them further power for setting pay and working conditions. France has historically been proud of its strict labour code, which has protected employees’ rights. Companies argue that the code has impeded economic growth and affected investment and job creation. Strikes and protests are scheduled to take place in several French cities on Tuesday.
