Unemployment insurance: Dussopt calls on MPs to get out of “caricatures”.

Labor Minister Olivier Dussopt on Monday night urged MPs to rid themselves of “false debates and caricatures” about his plan to reform unemployment insurance, which does not aim to “blame” those who are being deprived of work.

“We need to get out of false debates and caricatures: encourage workers to find jobs faster than today, where opportunities are plentiful. This is not to insult them, make them feel guilty or accuse them of being exploited by some + of the system +”, the minister opened at the start of the debates before the National Assembly. “I have never said that and I will never say that,” stressed the former socialist.

The text first provides for an extension of current unemployment insurance rules resulting from a hotly contested reform of Macron’s first five-year term.

It also opens up the possibility of decree modulating unemployment insurance so that it is “stricter when there are too many vacancies, more generous when unemployment is high,” as Emmanuel Macron put it during the presidential campaign.

This “modulation mechanism” will be “coordinated in detail with the social partners over the next 6 to 8 weeks” and “we have to find simple, readable and fair rules”, emphasized Mr. Dussopt, who wants to come into force at the beginning of 2023.

“I hear some MEPs in this Chamber defending a +right to be lazy+, a right to a +society without jobs+,” he added, referring to certain elected officials on the left. He wanted to be “minister for the + right to work +”.

The government is hoping for right-wing support for its bill, which is being strongly opposed by the left-wing Nupes alliance.

The minister gave impetus to proposals from the law to tighten access to “post-dropout” compensation or simplify the Recognition of Experience (UAE), particularly for family carers, another part of the bill.

The UAE is currently “experienced as an obstacle course” and “underused”, according to Carole Grandjean, Assistant Minister for Vocational Education, who is aiming for “100,000 initiated courses per year by the end of the five-year term”.

The bill will have a first reading through Wednesday, with more than 300 amendments on the menu.
