How is that French employment law that's causing all the protests supposed to HELP curtail unemployment?

I’m speaking about the law in France that would allow employers to fire anyone under 26 on a whim. How exactly is that supposed to reduce unemployment? The logic behind this eludes me.

    Simple. Currently, it is almost impossible to fire anyone in France. If you were running a business, and you knew that you couldn’t fire your employees, no matter how horrible they were, no matter how lazy they were, no matter how much damage they did to your business and your reputation, you HAVE TO KEEP THEM, you wouldn’t want to hire anybody, either.

    I don’t know, it doesn’t make since to me either, lets just hope the french interior minister will realize the the citizens do not agree with the bill or how it was voted on, and retracts it.

    The law sucks.. but the current situation is just as bad. It amazes me that they could not come up with something better. Why they stuck an age limit on it, escapes me.
