Macron's moment of truth: Can France reform its labour market?

Four months into his mandate, French President Emmanuel Macron has unveiled the big labour reform bill he promised on the campaign trail. Capping severance pay, reviewing collective bargaining, lowering payroll taxes... it's all part of his plan to reduce France's chronic unemployment. What kind of reform do you need in a world where the job market is changing faster than lawmakers can write bills?

Produced by Yann PUSZTAI, François WIBAUX and Christopher DAVIS.
