An end to the 35-hour working week?

Could French employees lose the 35-hour working week? A new report on competitiveness has prompted fears that working hours could be lengthened. Also, France’s Prime Minister makes a blunder, and a new study says women aren’t the only multi-taskers in the human race.

 

Le Parisien headlines with some controversial news: could we be waving goodbye to the 35-hour working week? An editorial inside the paper suggests it might not be so likely.
 
France’s Prime Minister came under fire in an editorial in Libération, for making a political blunder. Le Parisien deemed his error so embarrassing, they called it “Ayrault’s Black Wednesday”. Le Figaro went on to list all the gaffes the Socialist cabinet has made since they came to power in May.
 
And finally, a new report says that men actually do better than women when it comes to multi-tasking! Le Figaro tells us more.
