So much for encouraging immigrants to work.
French authorities rejected a nurse’s citizenship request, saying that she worked too much.
In addition to her position at a clinic outside of Paris, she also was working extra shifts at two other medical institutions. In a letter to the woman, the prefecture wrote, “You thus accumulate three jobs for a monthly duration of 271 working hours.”
French law forbids employees from working more than 48 hours in a week. The local officials who dinged the nurse’s application told her they would give her two years “to comply with the legislation.”
