The French know how to throw a protest. This summer angry taxi drivers in Paris torched and burned Uber cars who they felt were unfairly taking away their business. Now union workers at Air France have given executives for that company a bit of turbulence. Vive la Revolution!
In response to thousands of job cuts, workers stormed a gate at Air France headquarters near the Charles de Gaulle airport and burst into a meeting room of top executives who were discussing “Plan B” – a way to “reduce company costs” AKA cut 2,900 jobs. Several executives had their shirts ripped off and had to be escorted out of the building by security personnel, past an additional angry mob outside. The French really hate it when you take their bread.
Human relations and labor relations chief Xavier Broseta can been seen sans shirt as he runs from the building and hops a fence, getting away from the crowd who I assume is chanting “off with his head.”
