Latest collection of work-related blogs

Note in particular the first Dutch and French additions to my blogroll (not that I can speak either French or Dutch).

Un inspecteur du travail, literally translated, is a work inspector. A quick read, accompanied by my high school French (I'm 50, grin...), makes me believe that the writer is a labour standards officer in France, who handles disputes about contracts, hours of work and that sort of thing.

But I stand to be corrected.

Merci beaucoup, Kevin. I will make changes soon unless someone else thinks it means something else.
