Employment Laws in France
Q: What do you get from strict employment laws?
A: A substitute from labor to capital.
In France, nearly every restaurant and bar I went to used these hand held point of sale systems. They allow waiters to serve more customers, so reduce the need to hire more people. Employment laws, ostensibly designed to improve working conditions for employees, often reduce certain types of jobs on the margin.
