Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In health care, the 35 hour week is catastrophic.  Why?  Because the government has chosen not to hire adequate personnel to staff health care facilities.  There is clearly nothing wrong ab initio with the 35 hour week.  There is plenty wrong with the right's efforts to sabotage outside the democratic process by placing the sick and injured in jeopardy.

Yes, that was typical politics: we impose the 35-hour week on the private sector to get them to hire people, and then we sort of impose it on the publis sector - but without hiring... That was indeed one of the sorriest parts of the 35-hour plan
