Paris Museum Strike Spreads
It started at the Pompidou Center (the modern art museum pictured above) and has now spread to the Louvre, Versailles, the Arc de Triomphe, the Rodin Museum and Musée d'Orsay. Museum works are protesting government plans to cut the number of museum employees.
While in Paris this week, an announcement in English said "The Pompidou Center is closed today because of a strike. Thanks for listening."
