French business leaders react to Macron's labour reform plans

This week, we're with French business leaders at the annual conference of the employers’ federation Medef. As President Emmanuel Macron embarks on ambitious labour reforms, we're asking entrepreneurs whether France really does hate change. Also, we speak to the "boss of bosses", Pierre Gattaz, about his views on the president’s plans. Plus, we ask employers what would encourage them to create jobs.
