Scare Bleu: One less vacation day a year
Court Rules French Have to Give Up Holiday
: "The French will have to work one extra day a year, France's highest legal authority ruled Tuesday, upholding the government's decision to make workers surrender an annual holiday to generate funds for health care.
The decision by the Council of State, France's highest administrative body, comes just before the holiday in question: the Monday after Pentecost, which falls on May 16 this year. It was selected by the government as a 'Day of Solidarity.'"
