French Kiss 35-Hour Workweek Au Revoir

with one comment

This article in the Washington Post, ‘French Kiss 35-Hour Workweek Au Revoir’ notes a welcome change in French labor law. As Jews, many of us know that we can keep Shabbat while working more than 35 hours (I think I put in more than 50 last week). But, there is a small catch, “The changes will allow workers to increase overtime and work up to 48 hours a week if they want — the maximum allowed by the European Union.” I suspect that this will be enough for all but the most committed professionals (and people with two jobs).
