Rising energy prices and high inflation have taken a toll on French life. Several labor unions, including the CGT union, staged a cross-industry strike to demand an increase in the minimum wage and link wages to the inflation index on November 10. Traffic in many cities, including the capital Paris, was affected to varying degrees.

CGTN stringer interviewed several protesters in Paris to talk about what they demand and what they think the government should do. One resident, Laurent Lamoret, said, "we are demonstrating for better wages and working conditions."
