French Workers Mount New Strike Against Macron’s Pension Overhaul
PARIS—Masses of French staff took to the streets for the second time in two weeks, piling extra stress on President Emmanuel Macron‘s plans to raise France’s retirement age and threatening additional walkouts that would grind a lot of the nation to a halt.
Striking lecturers and railway, well being and oil staff staged marches in dozens of cities as part of a nationwide day of motion referred to as by unions to power the federal government to again down from its pension overhaul. Train, subway and bus providers have been severely curtailed, and dozens of flights have been canceled. Many colleges and nurseries remained closed.
