The 5.5 million French public-sector employees took to the streets threatening to close down airports...bus terminals...hospitals...medical clinics...and...all the other functions in the hands of the public-sector. They didn't like how President Macron was going about trimming the budget...eliminating redundant jobs such as street sweepers, for example. In Paris...there are 400 street sweepers per block...each paid a handsome salary with all the benefits one might imagine. How dare Macro wish to trim that battalion down to squad size!
