sleepFrench to study sleeping on the job as a necessity

If you thought a 35 hour work week and long vacations were enough rest for the French, you were wrong.  The French will spend $9 million to determine if taking a nap at work should be mandated.

France suffers from very high unemployment.  If companies are forced to give nap time to employees, that would force them to hire more employees to get the same amount of productivity.  If you want to study the difference between American and French culture you don’t have to look very deep to see some big differences.  The United States has low unemployment, high productivity, and no nap time.  France could end up the complete opposite.
