The flag of the CGT union (General Confederation of Work), is seen around burning tires, outside the Goodyear tire company, in Amiens, northern France, Tuesday Feb. 26, 2013. Workers at a dying French tire factory who've become the butt of American jokes are staging a day of last-ditch protests to try to save their jobs. The protests in the northern city of Amiens come after efforts to find a new buyer for the struggling plant have fizzled. An American executive who considered buying it sent a letter last week to the French government saying that France's economic model is too worker-friendly and discourages investment.
