France's Socialist government unveiled labor market reform plans making it easier for companies to cut staff, provoking criticism Thursday from within its own ranks and labour unions.Labour unions were also critical of the reform plan.The Solidaires union said Hollande's decision to favour competitiveness as did his conservative predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy "will produce the same results: no jobs and everything to expand company profit margins".The draft reform also provide more room for companies to reach agreements with their staff on employment conditions, and provide more exceptions to the conditions set out in the labor code, including on overtime pay and maximum working hours.
