Workers tried to shut down France on Tuesday with strikes affecting transportation, schools and the postal service in a showdown with President Nicolas Sarkozy over his government's attempt to raise the retirement age by two years to save money.
Mr. Fazlic said he had learned his lesson after strikes in 1995 brought much of France to a standstill for about two months.
"I understand the strikers; I tolerate it," said Fuad Fazlic, 38, a tailor at French luxury label Chanel, as he rolled his bicycle out of the Gare du Nord train station on his way to work.
