Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another tidbit:

entre 1997 et 2001, deux millions d'emplois ont été créés en France et le nombre d'heures salariées est passé 21,1 à 25,9 milliards

Not only jobs were created, but the total number of hours worked actually increased more.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes

Odd source ...
However, I stick to my opinion that big companies were not the sector which profited most of the 35 hour system. And where do young grads apply for a first job ? Mostly to medium sized and big companies.
I remain skeptical about the job creation virtue of the 35-hour week.

When through hell, just keep going. W. Churchill
