French workers have possibly the best protected working conditions in Europe......salary,pensions, practically free health care, short working week, 5 weeks paid annual holiday , childrens education , tax deductible travel to work,almost impossible to fire (you have all this is in the US ?? ) Therein lies the problem. .sense of entitlement.

The ongoing strike proves that railway workers do not wish to lose their privileges - impossible to fire, retirement at 52 on 90% of salary for train drivers, etc. etc. and abuse their protected status to challenge the democratically elected government (who clearly announced these changes in their manifesto). There is no connection whatsoever about making a living wage.
