Illustration fears that crystallizes, several thousand people demonstrated near the department stores on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris, covered by a “trivialization of Sunday work,” chanting “Macron, bosses, same fight.” Philippe Martinez, tipped to be the head of the CGT, was present, as Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
The extension of Sunday working in shops and liberalization of regulated professions (notaries, messengers) are the two most controversial and discussed measures. The bill of some 200 items, however, includes many other provisions, the opening of national coach routes, which will be discussed on Tuesday, simplification of the driving license, through a reform of the justice prud ‘homale or rules of collective redundancies.
A special commission, headed by the Socialist François Brottes, who served 82 hours, including Sundays, in the presence of the Minister of Economy has already reviewed and corrected, resulting in particular on increased supervision of the reform of the regulated professions and a compromise on Sunday working in shops, which removes the five Sundays of right and left to elected a choice ranging from zero to twelve.

The socialist “slingers”. not as openly displayed before Christmas intentions to vote against, but expect that the text “not votable as is” improved, especially on Sunday working to stay five Sundays and have a floor remuneration of at least twice the usual salary.
Considering that the “damage limitation” obtained by commission does not change the logic of “deregulation and austerity”, environmentalists also require substantial changes in favor including the environment.
Members Left Front hope “a start from the left to the Chamber to reject” the text, which enshrines the principle “the free fox in the henhouse” according to their leader André Chassaigne.
Right, opinions are divided.
Given this bill Nicolas Sarkozy called to fight, UMP, defenders regulated professions who continue to oppose the text by large press inserts are “obviously” against, as their president Christian Jacob. But as some elected Hervé Mariton intend to vote for, while others question.
