Day of mobilization and strike this Thursday, September 17 in Côte-d’Or

A day of mobilization at SNCF, RATP or even in National Education. The CGT, rallied by the Solidaires, the FSU and several youth unions, but also by “La France Insoumise” at home in Dijon, calls for demonstration and strike this Thursday, September 17.

“Recovery plan” versus “rupture plan”

Denouncing “the recovery plan” and asking instead “a plan of rupture” the unions demand, among other things, measures for “employment”, “public services”, increases in “wages” or the establishment of “32 hours”.

“A strike out of habit”

At the SNCF, the movement should be of “low magnitude” forecasts the Minister for Transport, Jean-Baptiste Djebbari which tackles what he calls “a strike out of habit”.

What are your reasons for going to the demo?

There are so many people unemployed if that can allow to employ more people it would not be worse” he continues.

“The minimum wage was good 40 years ago”

For that other young man, cap on his head, there is a real problem in terms of salaries in our country. “I moan all the time about the minimum wage” he asserts. “The minimum wage was good 40 years ago, today it’s dead. We work like dogs and we have a shitty salary. I think that we should” pull “the employers’ charges, because if the small bosses had less expenses, they would pay us better. ”
