PARIS — Numerous employees at L’Oréal’s factory in Lassigny, France, demonstrated Wednesday over demands for a wage increase.
Information varied widely about how many workers were involved in the strike at the facility that manufactures Yves Saint Laurent fragrances and makeup for other brands in the French beauty giant’s luxury division. Manuel Blanco, a representative of France’s Confédération Générale du Travail labor union, estimated approximately 80 percent of the 800 employees took part. A L’Oréal spokeswoman, meanwhile, said the amount was less than 20 percent.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
