Hundreds of thousands of people participated in demonstrations throughout France Thursday against the “El Khomri” labor reforms implemented earlier this month.

The law allows companies to demand increased working hours, gives them greater freedom to cut wages, and makes it easier to fire workers.

The WSWS spoke to workers at the demonstrations in Paris on Thursday.
