In grim French north, worker protests seem doomed

Goodyear employee burns tires, outside the Goodyear tyre 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. The words on the shirt translates to "Bosses from Hell ".(AP Photo/Michel Spingler)(AP Photo/Michel Spingler)
