France: Police water cannon drenches anti-labour reform demo in Paris

Police deployed water cannon against hundreds of rioting protesters in Paris, Tuesday, as the demonstrators took to the streets 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... Еще government’s new measures are 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.
