Sakozy to French workers: "Surrender to productivity"

The new president of France is seeking to reform the economy of Gaul.

Apparently it is a French tradition to take long lunches, kiss your co-workers good morning, and stand around on breaks smoking a cigarette while wearing a beret and striped shirt. Ok I made that last one up.

Sarkozy wants French workers to be paid for their overtime. Currently all they receive are extra days off.

Recent studies have also confirmed that French workers are the biggest whiners in the world. I always thought that title should go to Congressional Dims.

Of course, there could not be a story on CNN that does not take a swipe at the US.

Some dumbass American babe that works in France said "I did think I would have had a more humane life than if I was working in New York."

Yeah because France is just a great place to live once you get past the race riots, high taxes, and car burnings.

Listen I am sure that France has the potential to reform. I hope that Sarkozy has the power to get things done because Europe needs to regain its economic vitality. Still I fear that an entrenched socialistic mindset will prevent the French from reviving their once flourishing economy.
