France's Macron to Visit Bucharest to Meet President Iohannis

Ready for his close-up President Emmanuel Macron is spending £8,000 a month to employ a make-up artist known as'Natacha B

Faced with faltering ratings at home, Macron seeks to drum up support for his plan to overhaul the rule during a diplomatic blitz through eastern and central Europe.

While Hungary and Poland criticised the proposed European Union directive about workers posted overseas, labelling it protectionist, Slovakia is in agreement with France that the European Union needs a rule that workers posted overseas should earn salaries equal to those in the country they are working in.

Posted workers account for about 1 percent of the EU's total workforce, but they are perceived as pricing out local workers in Western Europe, putting downward pressure on wages and exacerbating inequalities in wealth.

Le Point news magazine reported that Natacha had already put in two separate bills one for the equivalent of £9,000 the other for £15,000

The Czech Republic and Slovakia make up half of the four so-called Visegrad states, a group that has opposed western European countries on issues including taking in refugees, and which has said Macron's proposals on posted workers go too far.

"Macron needs to deliver for French public opinion", Vimont said.

French President Emmanuel Macron will be visiting Romania today, at the invitation of the Romanian President Klaus Iohannis.

The New York Times reported that police transported members of Allah-Las away from the venue when the event was canceled. The driver of the van was a Spanish national who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, police said.

In doing so, firms do not have to make contributions to the host country's health and welfare systems - something that critics call "social dumping". "On the one hand, there is discontent in France over undeclared workers, on the other hand there are many people in Eastern Europe, in Romania, who want to work in France, Germany, Spain".

The practice undercuts working conditions in high-earning European Union member states, including France.

He touched on the issue during his election campaign earlier this year and discussed it with several EU Central European leaders at the European Council that took place in Brussels in June. In May, Macron promised to curb untaxed and uninsured Eastern European labour in France, blaming the United Kingdom and "ultra-liberal" EU member states for social dumping practices.

Operating loss was $106 million versus an operating loss of $269 million in the year-earlier quarter. But Macy's , with sales better than analysts expected, still missed profit projections.

Poland is the country that benefits most from the Posted Workers Directive.

Last year, the European Commission proposed new rules to regulate pay for posted and local workers, but the proposals were opposed by member states in central and eastern Europe.

On Wednesday, Macron won the backing of Slovakia and the Czech Republic, scoring a symbolic victory over the eurosceptic governments of Poland and Hungary which have led efforts in the region to block reform of the labour directive.
