'Le travail dominical revient dans le débat présidentiel'

This article from today's Figaro highlights the issue of Sunday store opening times.

It has been a theme raised in recent days by the frontrunning presidential candidates in France, Nicolas Sarkozy and François Hollande. Furthermore, it is an issue that has never really gone away since the controversial loi Maillé which permits businesses to trade in certain tourist areas and in major population centres.

dominical is the adjective relating to le dimanche:

  • un repas dominical
    (= a Sunday meal)
  • nos promenades dominicales
    (= our Sunday walks)
  • Les salariés privés de repos dominical perçoivent une rémunération.
    (= Workers deprived of Sunday rest are remunerated.)
