French Protest Semi-Reasonable Change to Labor Laws

One of the problems with French employment is that is nearly impossible to fire workers, so employers are very reticent to add new employees to their payroll. In response, France passed a law in which employers can fire workers under 26 in their first two years on a particular job.

So this change, which should result in more employment, is resulting in tons of protests. If the French populace is revolting against it, that lends credibility to the law's credibility.
