France's new president, Emmanuel Macron, wants to reform work and the labor market in the country from the bottom up. One of his advisers is the businessman Bruno Bonnell. We accompanied him for a day on his political mission.
One hundred days after the election, only one in three French citizens is happy with Emmanuel Macron as president. But that doesn't mean it's over for him, argues DW's Christoph Hasselbach.
