(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - policy, El Khomri project will not create jobs, it will increase unemployment (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Thu, 3 Mar 2016 13:09:45 +0200
So it should have sounded the tocsin, the Inter February 23, gave birth to a mouse. A
hollow text, effete, capitulator where it should have been revealing the fundamental lie
of El Khomri project. A date of mobilization on March 31, however, is starting to appear
on the side of the most combative unions. ---- If it goes ahead, this law does not
"stimulate growth" nor "create jobs" nor "allow employers to hire": it will instead worsen
unemployment. Here's why. ---- When the government says that this reform will create jobs,
he lies. In a country that had, in January, nearly 5.8 million unemployed and precarious
, push to longer working hours is criminal. Rather than hiring, employers will slave
away more those who have a job, paying the overtime much cheaper thanks to the El Khomri law.
. When the government says that this reform is vital for employers, he lies The French
capitalists are doing very well: in 2015, French companies have distributed 47 billion
euros to shareholders  (against 33 billion in 2011, 36 billion in 2012, 38 billion in
2013 and 56 billion in 2014, a record year). They also could cash 23.5 billion tax credit
for Competitiveness and Employment (ICCC) since the creation of this legal in Holland
misappropriation of public money  Without obviously create jobs.
. When the government says that this reform will revive "growth", he lies the infinite
growth is impossible - and that's good from an ecological point of view. In over-equipped
countries such as France, it is meaningless. Governments seek to create artificially blows
big useless projects like the airport of Notre-Dame-des-Landes. Still, we must continue to
maintain the myth of "growth" because if people get tired, she could claim, simply ... the
redistribution of existing wealth actually.
When the government says it will "soften" the labor law, he lies. The Labour Code is the
set of laws and regulations that govern wage exploitation. Any restrictions or limitations
are the result of workers' struggles, and reflect the balance of power between management
and labor. Zero issue "flexibility " here. The change is necessarily tip the balance in
favor of one at the expense of the other.
Now, thanks to this tailor-made law
the working day may occasionally climb to twelve hours (instead of ten), and the working
week to sixty hours (instead of forty-eight);
employees may, if a company agreement provides, work up forty-six hours per week for
the minimum daily rest time may be reduced;
patrons may sign with the yellow unions that lend to, company agreements cutting wages or
increasing the working time - which, for now, was only allowed to companies "in difficulty" ;
the indemnities received for unfair dismissal will be capped,
companies can lay off even if they make profit (they will just show a decline in revenue
for two consecutive quarters);
Overtime will be paid much less (10% instead of 25% minimum now);
enterprise agreements signed by unions between weighing 30% and 49% of the votes will
still be subject to a referendum of salarié.es; this would provide a second chance for
patrons to get some regressive measures, such as work on Sundays.
Raise the desire to do battle
This outrageous bill, which would crown a long series of social regression, must be fought
tooth and nail.
Let us not be intimidated by the police climate maintained by the authoritarian
government, brandishing the jihadist threat, wants to stifle social protest.
The battle of ideas began, with blows of petitions, surveys and forums in the press. But
this will not be enough to bend the PS-Medef government. The only answer to the height of
this new attack is a strike in all business sectors.
We must get this message before the new appointment of the Inter, on 3 March. It can not
ignore the dull anger rising.
The capitalists want us to ever work? Remind them that it is we who produce the wealth, it
is we who make them live, and tomorrow is we who move them.
