Sometimes even in villages.”

An effort for purchasing power

“I believe in this France of work and merit. It is this France that holds the country,” assured Emmanuel Macron. Thus, to keep away from a “lack of workers”, the President of the Republic needs to “train more according to the needs of the Nation” by encouraging the creation and resumption of employment with, “from next spring, an Act II of the labor market reform launched in 2017”. “If France had the activity and employment rate of Germany, there would be no public finance problems,” he additionally specified.
