With my husband we went twice to Paris, the City of Love, but trust me, the Romance fades quickly in front of the struggling with the French people. The first time, when we went to visit the Eiffel Tower, guess what? The employees were on strike, for some reason. So it was closed and no way to know when it would re-open. The second time, we finally were able to get in (after queuing for hours), but that's all we were able to enjoy because next, it was the employees of the public transportation who were on strike! Almost no bus or subways and no information, so you had to wait like an ass.
If French people's working conditions are so horrible, okay, go defend your rights, I understand, but in that case why do you penalize others and especially tourists? If you want to pressure your employers, then why don't you simply give free accesses? I am sure that if you make transportation or the entry of the Eiffel Tower free, your boss will hurry finding a solution to the problem. Otherwise, from a foreigner's point of view, it simply looks like you are selfish and you want a day off to stay in bed. Sorry if I sound rude, but I hope you'll understand how this is upsetting, when you've worked hard and saved money and scheduled vacations on the other side of the World only to find a closed door.
