Unemployment insurance reform, extension of controls to Pole-emploi: We must put an end to the unemployed!

Happy birthday to the unemployed! This is the message sent by the government the day before the overconsumption celebration, Friday 23 December 2022.

In the draft decree sent for consideration to the Council of State, trade unions and employers’ organizations (for simple consultation), the term of compensation for job seekers was to be reduced by 40% if the national unemployment rate is less than 6%.

Elizabeth Bourne will finally announce the project’s withdrawal on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Curiously, the left opposition, through the deputy and leader of La France Insoumise Manuel Bompard, welcomed on Tuesday January 3, 2023 the withdrawal of only part of the unemployment insurance decree:

it’s a ” First setback. Evidence that the balance of power pays off! ’, he was satisfied on his Twitter feed.

On Prime Minister Elizabeth Bourne: We will bring this topic back to the consultation on future rules for unemployment insurance. »

Whatever the case, to temporarily abandon this social cut, I took the opportunity to ratify a 25% reduction in the compensation term for all job seekers who open rights from 1Verse February in the metropolitan area. This is a maximum of 18 months instead of the first 24 months.

After all, what is the significance of these six months withdrawn from the social rights of the unemployed? In the face of unparalleled social and climatic challenges, nothing is more urgent than work, work, work, toil, servitude, in service. Function builder “.

So you, seeker of work, cease your slow wandering in the south of Corsica, and finally cross the avenue of economic progress, in order to snatch half the point of growth which will restore to Bruno Le Maire’s complexion the lost luster of the new chatter-liberals, in vain, and out of time, the predatory strain of a world with It just slips off their feet: engagement, growth, and vitality.

To do this, it will be necessary to implement »activation of the unemployed, and they are mainly responsible for their unemployment !

Hence the outburst of administrative radiation from Pôle emploi, which consists in depriving a person of his allowances, and removing him from the list of job-seekers for failure to fulfill an obligation, in particular an appointment.

In November 2022, according to the numbers he quoted mediapart58,100 people were deregistered, a record since 1996. Over the course of one month, the increase came to an incredible 19%, or 9,400 more people were deregistered than in October, according to figures from the DRES Institute, Department of Labor Statistics. .

There would have been an average of 50,000 deregistrations per month in 2022, compared to 42,000 in 2021 and 43,900 in 2019…

Without the Foundation being able to provide an explanation for the large number of beneficiaries that had been written off, the Minister of Labor, Olivier Dusupet, hastened, however, to attribute himself to Twitter a Satisfied Regarding the decrease in the category of job seekers category A (-65,800 people):

This is the usual trompe l’oeil. Radiation is not enough to explain the shape. It is therefore necessary to look at the aspect of categories B and C (partially unemployed) to understand the phenomenon of connected vessels.

Moreover, the penalties for “lack of job search”, representing 10% of the total amounts written off, compared to 5% in previous years. Undoubtedly as a result of the intensification of the control of the unemployed, a system that has been active since January 2022. With the goal of 500,000 checks in 2023 (+ 80,000 compared to 2019).

The perfect pretext for speeding up the police work of the unemployed is the difficulties of employment in the so-called “short” trades.

Instead of seeking the mismatch between supply and demand for labour, particularly the problems associated with inadequate training, or thinking seriously of the unsavory effects associated with low wages or poor working conditions, explaining a good part of the shortage of labour, coercive measures and childishness by the government.

This is the whole meaning of the new unemployment insurance reform that will take effect in February 2023 …

A sign that tensions are increasing in the Pôle-Emploi counters: According to the Force Ouvrière union, reports of radiation-related attacks have increased by more than 63% in 1Verse half of 2022 compared to 1Verse Semester 2019.

And the pressure is not ready to abate, because the operator intends to continue the trade battle in a tension that the unemployed do not want.

Alone in an attempt to sound a contradictory and discordant voice within the institution dedicated to employment, Jean-Louis Walter, the national mediator of Pôle emploi, indicated that mediation requests related to the new sanctions have increased from 2021, doubling compared to 2019 to reach. 11% of referrals.

A mediator who is free to express himself without hindrance raises in this respect “inadequacy”.Adding in her report for the year 2021 that “Some of these punishments seem really disproportionate, both in terms of their severity and in terms of their consequences.”.

The person who was asking a long time ago “included in penalties” and create a “rest time”In the first breach of commitments, he attacks the December 2018 decree that tightened the penalties, instead of making them gradually evolve.

Jean-Louis Walter always reminded us of this ‘Delisting is a serious decision’and forms “a test that even a socially integrated employee cannot overcome without harm”.

A study conducted by Pôle emploi and published on August 21, 2018, showed that among a group of unemployed people examined, 92% of benefit recipients and 81% of beneficiaries without compensation were actively looking for work. Only 14% of the checks resulted in deregistration, 60% of them related to job seekers without compensation, undermining the notion that many unemployed people will live off the Princess.

In 2019, a report by Pôle Emploi estimated fraud in unemployment benefits at 212 million euros out of 37 billion euros of money paid, which equates to 0.57% of the amounts paid…

And the cheating of social security contributions practiced by employers and self-employed athletes? The deficit, which is even larger, is estimated at between €8.9 and €11.3 billion in 2021, according to the Higher Council for Financing for Social Protection (HCFIPS) … That’s 40 to 50 times more than fraud in unemployment benefits.

The number of agents dedicated to combating health insurance fraud reached 1,060 full-time equivalents in 2019, compared to 965 in 2014. Not enough according to the Court of Auditors. Wouldn’t it be enough to force the unemployed to take responsibility for fighting fraud?
