France to replace youth job law

BBC reported French President Jacques Chirac has announced that the new youth employment law that sparked weeks of sometimes violent protests will be scrapped. He said it would be replaced by other measures to tackle youth unemployment.

Just when it looked like the French had grown a backbone, they capitulate to the mass demonstrations and rather than a very reasonable law that said that young people who are not able to to the job can be fired; something that was keeping employers from hiring them, because once hired even if they could not do the job, they could not be fired. Now they are going to try to force employers into hiring people with no experience, and who know that once hired the can't be fired.

I hope that our politicians are able to maintain a backbone longer when they see the illegals in our country demanding citizenship. We need to first close our border, and then we can talk about what those already here need to do to become citizens.
