We're not all bad, says French boss

We're not all bad, says French boss
 
Don't blame the boss, says business owner Julien Leclerc, who wrote a book called 'Salaud de patron' ('Bastard boss') salauddepatron.fr

In the continuing protest movement against the controversial labour reform introduced by the French government, trade unions and street protesters have upped the tone against bosses. Small business owners, who represent the majority of business owners in France, are alarmed at the violence directed at them. RFI meets one of them, who says unions are missing the point when they turn the boss into the bad guy.
