Re: Full day for a Frenchman?

Sadly the difference in labour productivity (GDP per capita) between France and the UK means that the French worker does more in four days than the British worker does in five.

I've seen this quoted a lot, and I need to look at how they measure it, because in my experience of high-tech industries in both countries I simply cannot believe it is true. It might be true in manufacturing, with French factories being more automated & having fewer staff.
