LauraW at Ace finds that, in lieu of working hard, learning skills and generally strengthening the economy, the workers of France would rather riot.
“I risk working for two years for nothing, just to be fired at any moment,” said Paris student Coralie Huvet, 20, who had “No to the CPE” written on her forehead. Pointing to painted-on tears, she added: “That’s depressing, that’s why I’m crying.”
This has created some obvious tension for France’s Muslim population, which is understandably feeling displaced.
I risk emmigrating to a country where I can freely express outrage at every offence, real or perceived, and having “The Street” yanked out from under me.
Besides, the youth of this country, with their piercings and protest theatrics, frankly scares the Baba Ganoush out of me.
