The economist responds to the president. Invited this Tuesday evening of 222H Max on BFMTV, Sandrine Rousseau was questioned about the remarks made this morning by Emmanuel Macron on the occasion of the presentation of the France 2030 investment plan.

“When we compare ourselves, we are a country that works less than the others, that remains true,” recalled Emmanuel Macron, “we have an amount of allocated work that is not at the right level. of life and cumulative schedules. We have a strength which is the social and educational model and a weakness is that we no longer have the productive model that allows it to be financed. “

Words that did not fail to make the politician of EELV and professor and researcher in economics react.

“Every time we say to ourselves that we allow the working time to increase, what happens is that not everyone works full time”, explains Sandrine Rousseau on our antenna, “and who does not not working full time? It is the precarious employees and in particular the women who choose to reduce their working time for a part but for the most part, three quarters undergo part-time work “

The unsuccessful candidate for the environmentalist primary assured that Yannick Jadot will defend during the campaign the reduction in working time and the four-day week: “32 hours a week with compensation for the lowest wages so that he does not there is no purchasing power “.
