According to information from Europe 1, the Minister of Public Accounts Gabriel Attal wants to accelerate the implementation of a new RSA formula with counterparties to its payment. This is a campaign promise from candidate Emmanuel Macron. And as of this year, the government is launching a one-year experiment in 18 departments.

Accelerating the implementation of a new formula RSA with counterparts to its payment, it is the wish of Gabriel Attal according to information from Europe 1. This measure is one of the campaign promises of Emmanuel Macron. Aisne, Aveyron, Bouches-du-Rhône, Loire-Atlantique or the metropolis of Lyon… In total, nearly 20 departments and one city will test this RSA under counterparties. Concretely, the recipients of these zones undertake to devote 15 to 20 hours of their week to an activity. A dive into a company, participation in collective workshops, an associative commitment… What to put in the direction of a return to employment.

A device already tested in the Haut-Rhin in 2019, under the leadership of Éric Straumann.

6 recipients out of 10 have been receiving the RSA for more than 2 years

“The philosophy is to say that there is a part of the beneficiaries of the RSA who are very far from employment”, explains the former president of the departmental council and current mayor of Colmar, “we must very gradually get them used to finding an activity. The idea is to get back on track, without replacing the employees of course.”

The experimentation must make it possible to test a measure that the Ministry of Public Accounts wishes to push. Because the RSA weighs for 12 billion euros in the expenses of the State and does not fulfill its role of insertion. Six recipients out of ten have been receiving it for more than two years.
