ABSTRACT
The article states that French President Nicolas Sarkozy's planned changes to an already advancing economy are luring businesses to look at France as a front line for expansion and investment. Sarkozy's plans include the revamp of French overtime, make mortgage interest deductible, abolish the 35-hour workweek and decrease corporate taxes. He proposes that employers pay a 25% premium for work beyond 35 hours a week but be exempt from social taxes on overtime wages.
