Job Squeeze in France

I saw an article in the latest issue of the Economist (link: talking about the automation of new trains in Paris. The article goes on to talk about the push in French businesses towards increased automation because of the burdensome labor laws (harsh payroll taxes). This made me think about the squeeze on foreign workers attaining jobs in France as the country continues to improve technologically. In a France where there are cultural issues that make it difficult for immigrants to get a job, this is a troubling trend for immigrants hoping to improve their situation by working in France.
