Workers Strike Across France Today over Macron’s Pensions Plan

HeadlineDec 05, 2019

In France, workers across the country are on strike today as a protest against French President Emmanuel Macron’s pension plan. The strikes have paralyzed transport in the capital Paris and other major French cities, but residents whose commute have been disrupted are still expressing support for the strike.

Commuter: “The strike is really for our pensions, and I think we still need to fight for it, even more so as I’m a civil servant and we’re pretty much impacted.”
