Labor Rallies in Paris

More Info
Large demonstrations in Paris against a proposed labor reform have drawn tens of thousands of participants and have resulted in clashes with police. The rallies, led by labor unions (notably the CGT, France’s largest), were organized in response to national legislation that would loosen labor regulations and allow employers to circumvent union negotiations when hiring and firing employees. French legislators have threatened to ban the rallies after several violent incidents, including vandalism and projectile-throwing that resulted in the injury and arrests of dozens of people. Strikes have disrupted transportation and civic services during the Euro 2016 football championship, of which France is the host.
