Macron’s party calls for further reforms on Sunday work laws

Macron’s party calls for further reforms on Sunday work laws - According to an article published in French media some 20 MPs from French President Emmanuel Macron’s ruling Republic on the Move party have said that France “must go farther” in loosening its Sunday work laws. The article came as Macron prepares his return to the French capital after spending just over two weeks at the presidential holiday residence in the southern French port city of Brégançon. Upon his arrival in Paris, he will once again be tackling the reform agenda he campaigned on. Including a labour and business reform bill unveiled by French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire in June. The bill, referred to as PACTE, aims to grow the number of small- and medium-sized companies in France by loosening labour laws and increasing employee shareholding, savings schemes and profit-sharing plans.
