Report “censored” by the government? -release

Rebellious François Rufin and several Communist lawmakers are calling for a government report stating that one in three unemployed people covered by unemployment insurance does not claim their rights. The government explains that the results need to be “thorough.”

Three weeks before the presidential election, is the government keeping secrets about the reality of unemployment? It said LFI Deputy Deputy Secretary François Rufin and several Deputy Communist Party Deputy Secretaries had asked Congress for a government report from the Department of Research, Research and Statistical Animation (dare) under the ministry for about 10 days. I doubt. Of labor. The content is promising. It concerns the non-use of unemployment insurance, the percentage of people who are eligible for unemployment benefits but do not. This subject has not been the subject of much research so far and has proven to be more difficult to define than, for example, not using RSA. The study reiterates that one in three potential beneficiaries is not touched. That. “There is little work on non-use of unemployment insurance because of the belief that there is no unemployment insurance.” Sociologist Didier Demazier explained at a symposium hosted by the Japan Institute for Labor Policy and Training (CEET), which produced a report by AEF Info in October 2019. Therefore, when Emmanuel Macron has already promised to continue reforming unemployment insurance, it may turn out that the problem is burning during the campaign.

It all started in September 2018 and enacted a law that “allows you to freely choose your professional future.” The law concerns the organization of training and, to a lesser extent, the operation of unemployment insurance. Within the framework of the review of this law, the Communist Party’s Deputy Pierre Daleville has adopted an amendment that provides (in Article 62 of the text): “Within two years […]Government gives [te] Submit a report to Congress on the reality and consequences of not using unemployment insurance rights. “We are already in the logic of blaming the unemployed, have a strong desire to target social fraud, and set aside many other issues, especially non-recourse issues. Today, Pierre Daleville explains. This report aims to highlight the gray areas.

Only two years later, in September 2020, it hasn’t been exposed to light yet. We will only hear about it 16 months later in a parliamentary report evaluating the September 2018 law issued in January 2022. “It’s overdue, but it’s in the process of delivery.” According to the agent, the Ministry of Labor claimed: “Complicated eligibility rules” Unemployment insurance made the final decision on the investigation difficult, but is currently planned. “At the beginning of 2022”.

Unexpected explanation

A few more weeks will pass. Here we are in March 2022, a month before the first round of the presidential election. The Communist Party’s agent is starting to get impatient, as nothing has come yet: when will this famous report be released? Their colleague François Rufin also asks himself a question.The latter, along with the audience, published a blog post addressed to Labor Minister Elizabeth Borne, where he affirms. “This report exists, it’s complete, and you and your company have reviewed it.” Not only reread, but also validate and send to Matignon and Elysee … where does the blockage actually come from? “Politics”, A few weeks before the presidential election.

Suspicion that the Ministry of Labor is trying to wipe out with an unexpected explanation. “The first results show that the percentage of non-use is lower than the percentage of some studies available, so we need to deepen it. This raises questions.” He explains. Therefore, if there is something surprising about this report, it is a small scale of the phenomenon investigated.Needs further investigation “Reason for this non-use: is it due to ignorance? […]Is this a voluntary withdrawal from the labor market? I am wondering in the ministry. “Therefore, we are moving from statistical surveys to psychosociological surveys!” François Rufin is surprised release.. Certainly there is something amazing. DARES publishes numerous works based on cross-references of managed data, but rarely challenges sociology. And when that happens, it’s mostly by seeking external contributions that trigger individual investigations.

Almost one-third of non-recourse

The CGT also believes that holding an investigation is political. Denis Gravouil, Unédic councilor on behalf of the union “I’m having a hard time imagining that I dared to do something mundane.” In a press release released on Monday, the plant suggests that the report will show that. “Hundreds of thousands of recipients have been affected.” According to our information, it is more accurately a problem for 500,000 people, which represents almost one-third of those deprived of jobs eligible for benefits. A rate close to the rate obtained in 2010 by two researchers, Sylvie Blasco and François Fontaine. Their study claimed that out of a sample of approximately 1,900 job seekers under the age of 50 covered by compensation, 39% of these individuals were covered. “Do not register[ai]Not ANPE [ensuite fusionnée avec les Assédic pour donner naissance à Pôle Emploi, ndlr] During their unemployment period, thus preventing them from receiving profits. “

How would you describe such a percentage? Paul Amplois has benefited from a strong notoriety, and you will soon imagine that there is some kind of automation between the fact that he loses his job and the fact that he registers there. The reality is more complicated. First, an important explanation. Registering for Paul Amplois is not the same as receiving an allowance. The evolution of the rules over the last few decades has led to the fact that only one of the two job seekers is compensated today.Second, contacting public employment services requires time-consuming, labor-intensive and indemnified management processes (indicating what you are looking for). “actively” Work) and sometimes ambiguous compensation mechanism. This can be discouraging. Especially if you think you will continue to be unemployed in a short period of time, if you doubt your right to compensation, or if you think it is too low and unimportant. In a 2010 survey, Sylvie Blasco and François Fontaine said:“Unemployed people who expect a quick return to work have little incentive to claim compensation, especially if it is time consuming or has high transaction costs.”

When can you find out what the long-awaited report from Dares says about it?The Ministry of Labor guarantees that it will actually be sent to Congress, but it will be necessary “Still a few weeks of work”. In the meantime, the results are there, whether or not the government has voluntarily played over time: it now calls the “election reserve” that began last Friday and risks leading public debate. You can ask the government not to publish certain documents.
