Date created :
As France gears up for a ninth consecutive weekend of Yellow Vest protests, the number of low-wage workers applying for a subsidy known as the "prime d'activité" has skyrocketed. This after the government expanded eligibility for it in a concession to protesters. Plus, Amazon has launched a new, ad-supported streaming service through its subsidiary, on top of its subscription-based Prime Video service.
