French Labor

Interesting day yesterday. French tranport workers struck for the day which shut down the metro and buses for the day. In a town where the bulk of the population uses the public transport it was a zoo. Cabs were refusing to even drive in the traffic and we were quite lucky to even get one from the client back to the hotel. As far as I can tell the strike was to make the 35 hour work week more flexible. Which means everyone want s to work more not less. I sure hope another strike doesn't happen in the next two weeks...I'll jus tstay inthe hotel if it does.
Back to work but it is Friday so I might get some blogging done over the weekend.
