Amazon are doing very well out of this strike

Retailers (the independents) not so much.

I see all those who have to work for a living on a daily basis just to feed their family (forget pensions) are really enjoying their commute to work.

Those on strike are losing pay too. Strangely there is still something like 68% support for the strike action, and lots of commuters interviewed on the various news channels saying that whilst they are finding it hard to get to work, they support the strike.

But I'm sure you are happy about Amazon, though I doubt they would be the only online merchants getting more business.

I see Ministers still have their chauffeurs.

Once this 'latest strike' is resolved, next year France will be striking over something else.

Every year, every month, every week, every day...there is a strike of some sort in France.

People just ain't happy in France.

You have to ask the question why.

It is has nothing to do with Macron.

I really have to wonder how quickly you think this current strike will be resolved. I doubt very much that it will be this year . And there are untold related issues, that have everything to do with Macron, because so many things are linked to it, not least loi du travail, chômage, etc etc. But you are welcome to dream about a resolution
