Relaunch: “We have to go faster”, says Bertrand

The ex-LR president of the Hauts-de-France region Xavier Bertrand believes that it is necessary “to go much faster” in the economic recovery of the country so that it is able to absorb “the first shock of the crisis” in the start of the school year.

The ex-LR president of the Hauts-de-France region Xavier Bertrand believes that it is necessary “to go much faster” in the economic recovery of the country so that it is able to absorb “the first shock of the crisis” in the start of the school year.

“We have to go much faster. If we wait for the start of the new school year, we will not be ready when we take the first shock of the crisis,” said Xavier Bertrand in the Sunday Journal.

“We were promised a massive plan for youth employment by early July. There is still nothing,” laments the former LR official and potential presidential candidate in 2022, suggesting that measures be voted as early as July in the amending finance bill under discussion in Parliament.

For him, “people do not expect lyrical flights but concrete measures. The absolute urgency is jobs, jobs, jobs!”.

Xavier Bertrand notably offers a “job access contract for young people” in exchange for bonuses and exemption from charges for companies, costing around 10 billion euros. “It is important, but economic and social collapse is a much more serious and imminent danger than debt,” according to the former Minister of Labor.

He suggests “an income-training guarantee” for the self-employed, a drop in VAT in catering and construction to 5.5% and the cancellation of charges for very small businesses (VSEs).

He also mentions the possibility of a “labor loan” to “transfer employees, from one sector of activity to another for a given period of time, much more easily, with their agreement.”

On the other hand, Xavier Bertrand says he is opposed to the implementation of the unemployment insurance reform, which “will make the unemployed more precarious” and that of pensions which is “neither clear, nor courageous, nor just”.

He expects Emmanuel Macron, who must specify his course in a television interview on July 14, to “tell the truth” about “jobs and the health crisis” and to “confirm that France will be the first country in the world served with the vaccine from Sanofi, a French company. “

Prime Minister Jean Castex, his former chief of staff, Xavier Bertrand assures that “he is a good person, who reveals everything that Emmanuel Macron is not. Jean Castex has a local roots and his feet on the ground , when the President prefers lyrical flights “.
