  • France's labour reforms: Pro-business or pro-worker? - Counting the Cost

    France has been gripped by a wave of nation-wide strikes and protests as enraged unions, students and workers have taken to the streets against a new and unpopular labour reforms bill. The eurozone's second-largest economy has been struggling to reduce its record-high unemployment rate, which stands at 10.6 percent, and President Francois Hollande's socialist government has been pushing for legislation that will overhaul the labour market and make the country more competitive. But the proposal has been denounced as being too pro-business and threatening workers' rights. Named after Labour Minister Myriam el-Khomri, the el-Khomri draft law aims to make it easier for companies to increase working hours beyond the current 35-hour working week and enable companies to justify layoffs, by ci...

  • Students protest against labor law reform that would cut benefits for young workers

    Clashes erupted between riot police and demonstrators on Thursday in Lima as young Peruvians protested a new law that strips workers between the ages 18 and 24 of some labour rights. Demonstrators threw stones and sticks at police who responded with tear gas. Marches were held in at least nine cities across Peru - in Lima 5,000 people rallied against the law. Police did not release numbers on injuries and arrests. Under the new law, workers aged between 18 to 24 who are dismissed do not get severance pay. Workers in the age group also get half the holiday time of older workers, and will not be paid the twice-yearly bonuses of one month's wages which is standard for other workers.

    Senate Republicans say they have a plan to save U.S. labor law from partisanship and dysfunction. But their prescription for reform could make for even more gridlock -- and critics say that's the whole idea. On the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) unveiled a bill that would make sweeping changes at the National Labor Relations Board, the federal agency that enforces labor law on unions and employers. The proposal would permanently change the board's makeup from five members -- three of whom, per modern tradition, hail from the sitting president's party -- to a more equitable six members, divided evenly at three Democrats and three Republicans. Sounds great, right? Everybody hates partisan bickering. As Alexander claimed on the floor, the change would "require both sid...

The eurozone's second-largest economy has been struggling to reduce its record-high unemployment rate, which stands at 10.6 percent, and President Francois Hollande's socialist government has been pushing for legislation that will overhaul the labour market and make the country more competitive. But the proposal has been denounced as being too pro-business and threatening workers' rights. Named after Labour Minister Myriam el-Khomri, the el-Khomri draft law aims to make it easier for companies to increase working hours beyond the current 35-hour working week and enable companies to justify layoffs, by citing 'economic' reasons such as falling sales or operating losses. Jean-Marc Daniel, an economist at ESCP Europe, joins Counting the Cost, to discuss why workers are unhappy and who really benefits from the proposed changes. Switzerland's flagging economy It's a country known for its low taxes, strong infrastructure, efficient capital markets and really good chocolate, but as of late, the chocolate industry has been one of the few sure things about Switzerland's flagging economy. For over a year, consumers prices have been falling, exports suffering and unemployment rising - with unemployment projections for 2016 as high as 3.7 percent, up from 3.3 percent in 2015. And the Swiss economy as a whole has not been performing much better, with just 1.2 percent growth expected for this year. For a country with a giant export sector the numbers don't make for great news. To a large extend, the Swiss problems can be traced back to January 2015 when the Central Bank decoupled the Swiss franc from the euro. Dr Sergio Rossi, a professor of economics at the University of Fribourg, joins the programme to discuss Switzerland's decision and its real effects on the economy. We also speak with Jean Claude Biver, the CEO of watchmaker Tag Heuer, about the state of the Swiss economy and the future of the luxury watch business. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Senate Republicans say they have a plan to save U.S. labor law from partisanship and dysfunction. But their prescription for reform could make for even more gridlock -- and critics say that's the whole idea. On the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) unveiled a bill that would make sweeping changes at the National Labor Relations Board, the federal agency that enforces labor law on unions and employers. The proposal would permanently change the board's makeup from five members -- three of whom, per modern tradition, hail from the sitting president's party -- to a more equitable six members, divided evenly at three Democrats and three Republicans. Sounds great, right? Everybody hates partisan bickering. As Alexander claimed on the floor, the change would "require both sides to find a middle ground." There's just one hitch: A permanent, even split along partisan lines could ensure that the most contentious labor cases go unresolved for years, with conservative and liberal board members at loggerheads. The reform would be akin to establishing a 10-member Supreme Court, permanently comprised of five liberals and five conservatives. "This is the destruction of the NLRB, and they know it," said Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America, which represents 700,000 workers. "It is a disgrace. Lamar Alexander is a disgrace." "That’s exactly what we’d expect a union leader to say about a bill that threatens to make a partisan board that, under Obama, has been favorable to unions into a board that’s fairer and more responsive to businesses and employees across the country," countered Jim Jeffries, a spokesman for Alexander. On the Senate floor Tuesday, Alexander said the proposal would encourage the fair resolution of cases by making the board into an "umpire" rather than an "advocate." But Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), chairman of the Senate committee that handles labor issues, told HuffPost in a statement that he believed the bill was "intended to undermine and debilitate the agency, rather than improve its functioning." "I would welcome the opportunity to work with any of my colleagues on legislation that would actually improve the Board’s ability to serve its important mission," Harkin said, "but I fear that this legislation is a step in the wrong direction." Wilma Liebman, a past chair of the board under President Barack Obama, agreed that the Alexander proposal could paralyze the board when it comes to the thorniest of cases. "I guess the idea is that neither side can sway things and that in theory at least the members would have to find a way to achieve consensus," Liebman said in an email. "In the atmosphere we now live in, however, I think... that the difficult legal issues would be gridlocked. "It is possible that on some issues, the six members might find a common ground, in the interest of deciding cases," Liebman added. "But for anything novel, controversial or difficult, it is hard to see how they would find a way forward. They would spend a lot of time negotiating, I guess. Or at war."
