The govt is delaying the precise solidarity allowance (ASS). The Minister of Labor, Solidarity and Health, Catherine Vautrin, acquired round fifteen solidarity associations on Monday, June 3, to current the federal government's priorities. During this assembly, she instructed, in response to her interlocutors, that the abolition of the ASS was now not on the agenda.

The Prime Minister, Gabriel Attal, introduced the change from this profit created in 1984 to the lively solidarity revenue (RSA), throughout his normal coverage declaration to Parliament in January. But the topic has not been mentioned since. If the undertaking is now not related within the quick time period, the federal government assures that it isn’t buried but. “The minister (only) indicated that at a time when the government is reforming unemployment insurance, this is not an immediate topical issue”Ms. Vautrin’s workplace shortly clarified.

The ASS, which is financed by the State – at an estimated price of 1.65 billion euros in 2024 – is granted, underneath sure situations, to job seekers who’ve exhausted all their unemployment insurance coverage rights. . If it have been abolished, unemployed folks on the finish of their rights must apply for RSA which is roofed by the departments. The latter, just like the left, the unions and associations preventing towards poverty, are firmly against the federal government's undertaking.

A “listening” minister

“We can rejoice in this decision”, reacted Noam Leandri, the president of the Alerte collective, which brings collectively 34 associations preventing towards poverty, throughout a press convention organized after the assembly on the ministry. Catherine Vautrin's statements verify a need to not make this undertaking a precedence since she had already made this sort of assertion throughout a gathering with the bulk deputies. “I think that the project is abandoned because it would lead to an increase in RSA beneficiaries, and I suppose that the departments have stepped up to oppose it”guesses a Renaissance deputy specializing in these topics.

Association leaders who participated in Monday's assembly famous two different constructive factors. According to Noam Leandri, “Catherine Vautrin told us she was fighting so that next year there would be more youth employment contracts”a system which supplies 18-25 yr olds with fifteen to twenty hours of weekly exercise help in return for a month-to-month allowance of 528 euros.
