France's Macron slammed for spending $31000 on makeup

Macron spends £24k on makeup since becoming French president France's Macron sets sights on EU cheap labor rule

It turns out, the new French president spent 26,000 euros (Rs 19,81,817) on makeup during his first 100 days in office.

The posted workers directive aims to make the internal market fairer for workers who are sent by their employers to another European Union member.

Mr Macron, 39, became France's youngest ever president in May after beating far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in the country's election.

Macron embarked Wednesday on a three-day diplomatic blitz through Austria, Romania and Bulgaria to drum up support for his ambitious plan to reform the directive at a summit in October. They have said that they are "trying" to find a cheaper alternative.

Bulgaria's prime minister said he regretted divisions that have emerged in the European Union over the issue.

Poland is the largest source of posted workers, about 300,000 to 400,000 a year.


Macron's government has proposed to cap the use of posted-workers contracts at twelve months over a period of two years. In addition, they don't have to pay into the host nation's social system. France, which has one of the highest rates of such "posted workers", sees such employees as undercutting it own domestic labour force.

"All the countries (in eastern Europe) know there's a problem and that things have to be changed", Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said Friday after talks with Macron. Definitely, the cloth burns between Paris and Warsaw.

This system, critics say, allows businesses in relatively low-priced countries in central Europe to send workers to more expensive parts of western Europe and significantly undercut the wage and benefits costs of rivals in the "host" state.

In a scathing attack that could drag relations between western EU powers and the European Commission in Brussels on one side and Poland's Law and Justice Party (PiS) government on the other to a new low, he said the Polish people deserved better.

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said the concerns of countries in the east needed addressing, as well as those of the west, but gave no details on what he would deem acceptable after meeting Macron.
