France: President Macron promises increase in minimum wages, tax concessions

WEB DESK

French President Emmanuel Macron has promised an increase in minimum wages and tax concessions in response to weeks of violent protests. France has seen four weekends of violent protests against fuel tax rises, living costs and other issues.

Speaking in a televised address, Mr Macron condemned the violence but said the protesters’ anger was “deep, and in many ways legitimate”. He said the minimum wage would increase by 100 euro per month from 2019.

He further said a planned tax increase for low-income pensioners would be cancelled, overtime pay would no longer be taxed, and employers would be encouraged to pay a tax-free end of year bonus to employees.

Yellow vest movement opposed fuel tax rises among host of other issues in France and held demonstrations across the country, however, Government sources said, it has been hijacked by ultra-violent protesters.
