Yet Another Strike

Surprise, surprise – there's another strike in France. This time it's the Le Monde journalists. I'm starting to believe that "Comment faire la grève" is a subject taught in French schools. Following a 20m euros loss last year, the paper is planning to cut jobs, most of them journalist positions and of course the journalists are not happy. Read about it here.

Usually I'm in favour of industrial action but this time it really makes no sense. The paper is doing badly and not selling newspapers so is laying off journalists. So by striking and shutting down production the paper loses EVEN more money..so...what's the point?

I don't really get it either.
