French President Emmanuel Macron is in Salzburg where he has kicked off his tour to convince EU leaders to curb so-called posted workers rules. The rules allow for people to work abroad, but with the same low wages and benefits as they have at home. Macron’s Austrian hosts, who are contending with a robust far-right, wholeheartedly back the French leader, but nations further to the east less so. What if there's no compromise?
