French finance minister Le Maire comments on the strikes by railway unions


French president Macron is facing his toughest time in charge of the helm, as nationwide strikes by railway unions and protests by airplane pilots, retirees, and students is making for some unpleasant scenes in the country.

Although the protests are very much not connected to the railway union strikes, but it all paints a picture of chaos nonetheless.

Macron and his aides are still trying to push forward with economic reforms and last year the economy grew at the fastest pace since 2011. So, this is an untimely disruption for Macron and the French economy.
