Apple store employees all over France went on strike during a critical time for Apple, during the iPhone 5 launch.
They were striking over better working conditions including better wages, having water fountains in staff areas and meal vouchers. Although they picked the busiest time for Apple to hold their strike, sales for the iPhone 5 seemed to not be affected as people were still lined up at every Apple store getting their new phones.
Last year, Apple store employees in rome walked out during the iPhone 4s launch. I wonder if they were able to work it out.
