Evidence of the insane prejudice against shorter work time in the Anglo-American media, headlines proclaim, (triumphantly, it appears):
"France ends 35-hour work week"
"France Scraps 35 Hour Week"
"35-hour week scrapped"
Only when one reads the articles, one learns that the law has been "eased" not repealed, President Sarkozy "has been careful not to do away with the popular 35-hour working week completely" and in big companies, "no-one wants to renegotiate the 35 hours and reopen Pandora's Box."
