Thoughts: France surrenders to....

http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/Europe/04/10/france.labor.law/index.html"> Itself. How screwed up is this?
The French government has scrapped a controversial youth job law, bowing to weeks of million-strong protests with a change of heart likely to further undermine the image of the country's embattled Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin.

Students and trades unions claimed victory after President Jacques Chirac announced the decision on Monday.

De Villepin made an address on national television to express regret over the failure of the law that would have made it easier to hire and fire workers under the age of 26.

So France passed a law that would help the economy and help France but a bunch of whinny kids protested. So France did what France does best. Surrenders.
