National strike plan for March 23 in France

       I just find the Socialist countries interesting to follow.  I am of a simple mind, being a product of the public school system and the five day plan.  If everyone is beholding to a government for life's necessities, who gets the bill?  Again, I find it odd that the Democratic party in our country wants to ram this Obamacare down our throats.  When the government gets control of the health insurance, doctors, hospitals, who will get the bill?
Are we able now to do the simple task and fire a teacher who is under performing?

FIVE trade unions have called a nationwide day of strike action on March 23 in protest at the French government’s proposed pension reforms.

The CFDT, CGT, FSU, Solidaires and Unsa are planning the industry-wide walkout after Nicolas Sarkozy announced a new law on retirement would be pushed back to the autumn instead of summer as originally planned.

It is too early to say what effect the strike will have – or which areas will be hit.

Unions called for a 'day of action' following yesterday's summit between business leaders, politicians and unions.

The government is planning a reform of the French retirement system later this year. In a poll last weekend, 59% of people said they were against changing the state pension age.
