Got to love this. Pôle Emploi, the agency in charge of dealing with the unemployed (currently riding at 9.7% in France) is going on strike. Not enough resources to go around they claim, and now they are planning job cuts for 2011. Pole Emploi will, in effect, add to the ranks of the unemployed; a little ironic. It reminds me when the unemployed in France went on strike (actually they just manifested) saying they wanted more benefits.
