In fact, the checklist is lengthy, I might have cited the serving hatches (Praud, Aphatie, Calvi, Pujadas, Elkrief) in addition to many self-appointed specialists on the pension problem: Thréard, Barbier, Saint-Cricq (who claims that the reform is best for girls), Cayrol (which is planted on the 2014 reform, complicated age of departure and period of contribution), Dessertine which, for years, continuously tears on “ debt, debt, debt "…
Yesterday night (December 17), I surfed on three applications regarding pension reform.
. On BFM, we had been entitled to a LREM deputy, Bruno Questel (Eure), making remarks to occupy the land, however clearly not too accustomed to the undertaking. The identical was true of Charles Consigny, who condemned the leftists contesting the reform (on the a part of a "rightist", that is hardly stunning). Admittedly, there have been opponents to retirement by factors (together with Sophie Binet, of the CGT-cadres, who appeared frightened by the nonsense which was against him, amongst others on the alleged benefits for girls), however the loyal gentleman supposed separating the debaters was none aside from the PAF histrion, Frantz-Olivier Giesbert, reside from Marseille who poured out his hatred, his rage, flaunting as typical his ignorance, with an exceptional cheek.
. On LCI, Agnès Verdier-Molinié (whom we now not see on C within the air, it needed to find yourself annoying with its pervasive conduct or to overly mark a program already certified as neoliberal) delivered with impunity its propaganda anti-public service, excessively pro-capitalist, anti-social spending, comforting a Swiss journalist who was ironic "On the financial decline of France ". She disputed the fee of bonuses to academics (based on her, " the French are fearful ”Of those billions) and flew as at all times, to the help of non-public academics who earn a lot much less. And since LCI is just not restricted to cruelty, Pascal Perri needed to be on set: he stigmatized the pessimism of the French for whom all the pieces would go flawed and was offended that " all the pieces is targeted on equality " in our nation. We didn’t escape both Roland Cayrol, who generally will get free with a sure contempt towards the protesters of the reform, him who generally crashes when he talks about it (on C within the air just lately he claimed that the Hollande reform had raised the retirement age to 63 " at the moment in power "When she elevated the contribution interval to 43 years (which isn’t the identical factor).
. So exactly, I went to see on France 5, C within the air, the Lagardère group present (JDD, Europe 1, Paris Match). There, we had the whole: it was essential to get offended Françoise Fressoz, editorial author of World who runs the set to defend the coverage of Emmanuel Macron (she was additionally yesterday on France Inter the place she too was mistaken, on the problem of haircuts, later corrected by an auditor). Raymond Soubie, ex-social advisor to Sarkozy and Bruno Jeudy (from JDD), supporters loyal to the financial proper. I gained't say something about Fanny Guinochet (The Specific, beforehand The Opinion of the sarkozyst Nicolas Baytout) as a result of if she too defends liberal theses, she is aware of her topic, works her information and expresses herself typically with honesty and a sure respect in the direction of the unions.
Excessive Commissioner Auchan
Clearly, Macronie has plenty of bother discovering nickel-chrome makers. The brand new Excessive Commissioner for Pensions, Laurent Pietraszewski, has a case that sticks to his pores and skin (having needed to fireside an Auchan cashier as a result of she had provided a consumer a barely toasted chocolatine). As well as, when he had resigned for 2 and a half years to be a member of parliament, Auchan paid him severance pay of virtually 72,000 €! Signal of the instances, many media are already falling on the overcoat. However right here it’s petty guilty him, as a result of we all know of different LREM deputies who left their employer with a a lot increased indemnity, as much as ten instances this determine (I’ve names)! This says so much, after all, about "the brand new world".
(textual content and screenshot on the HATVP web site: we see that, amongst these individuals, we could be a "volunteer coach" for unemployed 45 yr outdated girls and hearth an worker for a peccadilla)
The retirement of Agnes Buzyn
On France Inter yesterday morning (December 17), Agnès Buzyn stated that the July Delevoye report had been praised by all of the union forces: false.
She says that the reform is favorable to girls and damaged careers: false. She says that ladies at the moment don’t have any bonus for the primary and second baby: true by way of the quantity of pension, false by way of the period of contribution since girls have to date earned two years per baby, which might save them the low cost for inadequate quarters. And the bonus can be utilized by people due to the upper wage.
She says that the reform brings new rights: 1000 € minimal (85% of the minimal wage). In actuality: topic to a full profession. Measure already current at 81% of the minimal wage and whose transition to 85% was offered for by a regulation of … 2003.
In response to a query, she denies that this reform can delight insurers and offers for example the truth that the reform offers a pension for anybody who receives a wage of as much as € 10,000 per thirty days. Solely those that earn greater than € 10,000 might use capitalization insurance coverage. She pretends to not perceive that the reform as an entire, insofar as it would allocate decreased pensions in comparison with the present system (if solely by the truth that all of the years can be taken under consideration together with the unhealthy not like to the present calculation), the insured must take out extra insurance coverage. (On this level, I word that one side of the reform is nearly by no means talked about: supplementary pensions (Agirc-Arrco) are disappearing.)
She appeared to confess that the pivotal age (at 64), which angered the CFDT could possibly be deserted since in any case the typical age of departure is already 63.5 years, very quickly 64 (to be 42 years outdated) contribution those that began working at 22 should work till 64, and plenty of others at 65, 66, 67). Which might imply that the ability is provocative along with his pivotal age, which he also can quit with out making a lot distinction whereas satisfying Laurent Berger.
I don’t comply with what she stated in regards to the hospital: solely the truth that, like all macronist minister, she needed to show to us her attachment to the hospital by the truth that she labored there, and let his entire household work there (husband, youngsters). A bit like Darmanin who recurrently recycles his mom, his grandmother, his grandfather, Sibeth Ndiaye his stepfather.
When politics is just not positive, it really works on have an effect on.
The Smic at 1209 euros
Madame Pénicaud introduced yesterday (December 17), very proud, at Parisian that the minimal wage would improve by 1.2% on January 1, 2020 (i.e. € 15 per thirty days). As if to calm the spirits, the day of a giant demonstration. She added that since 2017 (when Emmanuel Macron got here to energy, due to this fact), an individual on minimal wage can have seen his earnings improve by € 164, or almost € 2,000 per yr. As she says, that’s to say with " social help ": The exercise bonus primarily, which advantages many low-wage employees however not all since there’s a ceiling on assets. Complicated wages and earnings from help is restricted to this authorities, which is obstructing the minimal wage (in January there can be no assist) to fulfill employers. In accordance with the suggestions of a committee of specialists, right-wing economists. And with out taking into consideration the opinion of the nationwide collective bargaining fee which was to pronounce on Tuesday … after Pénicaud's announcement (even the GSC stated: " she doesn't care about our opinion ").
Too unhealthy we don't have the video of the interview with the Minister of Labor: I think about explaining all of this, hopping, freaking out, messing round with the numbers, stirring up the air to get out of bother.
On December 12, a video was all the fashion: Muriel Pénicaud, interviewed in her ministry, was unable to clarify how the factors reform could be higher based mostly on your complete profession moderately than the very best 25 years. Her efficiency is pathetic and, it have to be stated, comical (she has been seen and reviewed, if solely to have a great time of hilarity). And this isn’t the primary time. She had already made a giant mistake on Europe 1 on the minimal pension (complicated it with the minimal outdated age). There is sort of a contest: to the one who comes out the most important mistake. Sibeth Ndiaye had made sturdy on December 5 on France 2 when she was closely mistaken on the low cost within the proposed reform (which she restricted to 2 years, between 62 and 64, when it’s for all times).
MP and unemployed
Mediacités has revealed that this elected LR receives unemployment advantages even when she is compensated: as deputy mayor, vice-president of the metropolis and vice-president of the Area! Or, based mostly on 2017, most likely an quantity of compensation round € 6,000 per thirty days.
It should have been famous that she and her get together have recurrently poured out their aggression towards the "assisted" and authorised the scandalous measures towards the unemployed. A yr in the past, little doubt due to these years of service, Valérie Debord was approached to change into secretary of state to the federal government, as a result of she was thought of "Macron-compatible", based on a remark by Newest information from Alsace.
Recall that just a few years in the past (in 2014), the creator of a parliamentary report back to the Karcher towards fraudsters in social advantages (2011), Dominique Tian, UMP deputy, was pinned by Mediapart for having hid an account in Switzerland round 1.5 million euros. His report acknowledged that there was only one% fraud on social advantages alone, however he tried to current issues in such a manner that public opinion might consider that it was a phenomenon breadth.
Jean-Paul Delevoye, Excessive Commissioner for Pension Reform, member of the federal government, due to this fact resigned this morning. In a weblog publish 14 months in the past, at the moment (October 16, 2018), I requested myself: "Will Jean-Paul Delevoye go the space? This was earlier than the publication of his report (in July 2019). I based mostly this questioning on the truth that he needed to present the impression of in search of consensus. Which led him to make use of lovely phrases ("collective", "solidarity", "distribution") however to be terribly confused, committing plenty of errors in his public interventions. Subsequently, he continued to get embroiled in interviews with journalists who had been content material along with his solutions. I got here to marvel if he was in charge of the reform he was presupposed to result in. He had as a mediator, as soon as, laid a textual content which had given him a picture of humanist, by criticizing a deleterious ambiance of French society (underneath Sarkozy), denouncing the rise in wealth and inequality. He had been heard to trigger, like a vulgar Fillon, the necessity for politicians to be unassailable. We’ve since seen that he was in a position to make the most of this picture that he had concocted since he flatly bought his capacity to mount a "humanism" module in an insurance coverage institute! However to inform the reality, I didn’t assume that it could fall on false declarations of mandates a few of which relate to the battle of curiosity (taking into consideration his operate within the authorities) and on a lure of petty achieve (5 instances the potential future minimal retirement at 1000 € all the identical) and really clumsy. We lose ourselves in conjectures: how at this stage of duty, such blunders might be dedicated? In any other case a conviction of impunity pegged to the physique.
. His resignation was sewn with white thread: clearly, the federal government feared that the Excessive Authority for the transparency of public life would ahead the case to Justice. That is what was carried out this afternoon, December 18.
Lack of self-confidence
Jean-Paul Delevoye due to this fact participated in 13 boards of administrators (word: this determine might already be decrease than actuality), a few of which there’s a battle of curiosity. As well as, he was critically mistaken in regards to the quantities acquired: we really feel that he hesitates, doesn’t know an excessive amount of, then acknowledges that it’s not the sums he had initially accepted however way more, for instance € 78,408 and never € 40,000. Elsewhere, 73,000 over the yr and never 64,000. It jogs my memory of a tax controller good friend who, just a few years in the past, when it was essential to declare his gold bars, declarants returned just a few days later saying that 'that they had forgotten some!
Delevoye due to this fact suggested on insurance coverage, the IGS paid him. It has not been famous that he was president of the Hauts-de-France (State-Area) regional public order observatory. We find yourself having a nasty temper: the president of this Area is Xavier Bertrand … a former insurer. No report?
We knew that François Fillon had as soon as defined that the purpose system is what makes it potential to scale back the quantity of pensions (all of us noticed the video). In a video broadcast by the CGT on December 13 (which is now not obtainable on BFMTV), we see Emmanuel Macron who says that it could be " hypocritical "Than elevating the retirement age to 62. So the reform ought to have its weight within the wings (not solely due to Delevoye’s private blunders caught in his personal lure and on the verge of resigning). Besides that the announcement of Edouard Philippe to repair the age of equilibrium at 64 years frightening the anger of Laurent Berger is just not essentially a mark of authority of the Prime Minister however maybe nicely a set as much as lastly quit this rule and thus give the impression of letting go of ballast, and recovering the CFDT. The system as an entire would subsist with this infamous injustice of basing the pension on the 43 years of the profession, ie a drop in earnings of 20 to 30% in comparison with the present system.
CFDT: that's all
As I can’t perceive how the CFDT can take into account that the factors system as needed by the federal government is a step ahead, I went to this union's web site and I went by way of very many press releases, on virtually three years with out discovering an argument. Alternatively, on September 5, 2019, the CFDT revealed a big article by Christian Chavagneux Financial Alternate options contemplating that it included an attention-grabbing evaluation however didn’t agree with all the pieces he stated. This text factors out the injustice of the purpose system, particularly for profitable careers. If anybody is aware of a textual content by which the CFDT would justify its help for the purpose system, I’m .
. extract from the article reproduced by the CFDT on its website:
" 6/ A system unfavorable to those that have skilled difficulties
In response to Jean-Paul Delevoye, the brand new system could be extra favorable "for individuals with profitable careers". Nothing is much less positive. Admittedly, at the moment, to validate 1 / 4 of retirements, it’s essential to have touched at the least 150 instances the hourly Smic and people which labored much less don’t draw any revenue for retirement there. This could now not be the case. However within the non-public sector, the 25 greatest years rule permits you to take up the impact of a number of years of badly paid odd jobs or unemployment. Whereas with the purpose system, these unhealthy years can be mirrored within the remaining pension stage. "
. A few of these little critiques have appeared on my Fb account lately.
