French baker fined EUR 3,000 for being open every day

And then there's this. A French baker has been fined EUR 3,000 for being open seven days a week, breaking a local decree banning bakeries from doing that.

CĂ©dric Vaivre runs a small bakery in Lusigny-sur-Barse, France. In Summer 2017 he was open every day to serve tourists. But apparently by doing that he was breaking labour laws.

The baker is refusing to pay the fine, and we can all see why. If a businessman wants to work more, he should be allowed to do that. Even the local mayor is supporting his decision, saying that "There is nothing worse than closed shops when there are tourists."

Over 2600 signatures have been given to support the man. You too can join in by doing it here.

He told the labour inspectors that "I only did my job," when meeting with them in December.

Now, let's think about it for a moment. If a business chooses to be closed for three days a week, they it should be allowed to do that. Same applies to when someone wants to keep his business open every day. As long as you don't harass your employees, as long as they are not abused with the working hours, why should anyone have a problem. Weirdly enough, in 2017 more than 120 local businesses were asked if they wanted to maintain the decree and majority said they wanted to keep the rule that forces them to have a day of rest.
