Cartier workers go on strike


Employees at the Cartier flagship store in Paris, located near the Palais Garnier, are striking for the first time in the company’s history.

On October 18th, approximately 70 gem polishers, who are employed in the Cartier workshop in Reims, protested outside the store and demanded an increase in wages.

One worker claimed to only earn €1,700 (£1,437) a month after 13 years of employment with the company.

The striking workers are demanding a pay rise of €200 (£169) a month, based on the company’s high profits, but Cartier has only offered to a raise of €75 (£63).
