Labor Strikes - Greves, Paris: 12 reviews and 8 photos
Mrs Thatcher would be turning in her grave with the power that the public service unions exert in Paris. Barely a month seems to go by without one group or another airing their greivances in public.
A good strike should consist of a bunch of men standing around a warming brazier and shouting 'SCAB' at the the strike breakers. Strikes in Paris are a far more serious affair in a nation that loves a good riot.
Take, for example, what took place on the day the IOC visited to assess the city for it's olympic bid : (from BBC news)
"Much of the Paris metro and bus system was at a standstill, half of all flights to the city's two airports were cancelled or delayed, and post office and government offices were closed."
Have a quike browse on the internet before you go, transport stikes could cause you serious problems, but other services should not affect your visit - who ever heard of waiters going on strike ?
