We all know that some get it easier than others in life. A prime example of this inequality are the French. Working only 35 hours a week and still getting
6 5 weeks of paid holiday… Sacrebleu!
And now they won’t have to answer their work emails either, well not after 6PM.
The French aren’t immune, every worker knows of the constant pressure to answer work emails, and this doesn’t go away after you leave the office. However, a deal signed by the tech industry and the unions in France now mean that companies aren’t allowed to contact employees electronically after 6PM, by law!
Hailed by unions, understandably businesses aren’t too impressed. France has a large tech presence with Google, Facebook and others, who already have to jump through the endless hoops of French bureaucracy.
You bet there will be some fight back by business. But, just don’t expect the French to roll over this time; there’s a lot of sun bathing time on the cards…
