THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2015-10-07

Air France Fury (part 1)

Is there any justification for the manhandling of two Air France executives at a meeting where management announced nearly 3,000 job cuts? Unions themselves denounce a few rogue elements that were out of control. Can cooler heads prevail to end the turbulence at the national carrier, a result of stiffer and stiffer competition? And why does France seem particularly prone to violent outbursts, be they farmers tossing manure or factory workers holding their bosses hostage?
