Just so you know, if you demand more and more from the government, to the point that you rely on the government to live your day-to-day life, you WILL reach the point the French are at now: austerity, cuts, discrimination, etc. They've made their bed and now they have to protest, torch cars, and march just to get what they think they are entitled to from the government, who sics the police or military on them when they cause a disturbance.

Is France Poor?
Poverty in France has fallen by 60% over thirty years. Although it affected 15% of the population in 1970, in 2001 only 6.1% (or 3.7 million people) were below the poverty line (which, according to INSEE's criteria, is half of the median income).

So they're more competitive, why are the citizens so dissatisfied? Are just the corporations benefiting?

As France's economy takes off, a new problem: labor shortages

PARIS (Reuters) - Business is booming for Sylvie Guinard, who runs French machine manufacturer Thimonnier. The problem is, she can’t find the enough staff – even in a country where millions of people are out of work.

 
 

The situation is most stark in France as the labor shortages - a problem that also afflicts the construction, engineering and IT industries - come despite a stubbornly high unemployment rate that is currently 9.4 percent and has not dropped below 9 percent for six years.The situation is most stark in France as the labor shortages - a problem that also afflicts the construction, engineering and IT industries - come despite a stubbornly high unemployment rate that is currently 9.4 percent and has not dropped below 9 percent for six years.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-economy-labour/as-frances-economy-takes-off-a-new-problem-labor-shortages-idUSKBN1FT2KG  

How Macron is revolutionising the French labour market

Flexibility and benefits for those who lose their jobs: with a great reform plan, the French labour market is changing. The keyword is “flexicurity.”

With all due respect, I didn't ask why they are or are not afraid. I asked why they're dissatisfied.

How in the HELL can you have a labor shortage with 9% unemployment? 

 

You got too many on the welfare dole who don't want to work or way too much unskilled immigration.

Exactly, but don't you DARE bring up the effect mass immigration has on an economy and a culture.

Mid 2000s

 

1. Congress passes laws to encourage banks to provide home loans to lower income earners

2. Banks are happy to do so....knowing they will soon foreclose on 1000s of these homes

3. Banks know they will be bailed out...plus retain the 1000s of foreclosed homes. 

 

Sometimes hard to choose between the wolves and the sheep...or determine who is which

Im not....but the Yellow Vests are.   These are two entirely different movements. The recent protests vs the YV over the last year

Our press has all but ignored the YV over the last year.  Why????...because it is more of a populist movement
