Are French politicians paid too much?

France 24, May 19

This week France 24 took a closer look at France’s 577 members of parliament.

Elected for 5-year terms, they split their time between the stunning Palais Bourbon in Paris and their constituencies.

Though some complain that they work too hard, French lawmakers certainly receive some very good perks in return.

President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to clean up politics, making it more ethical and transparent.

You can watch the video on our Daily Video on the right or here on the France 24 website.
