No doubt draw up a first assessment of the health crisis, a few days before a new phase of deconfinement, scheduled for June 22, explains 20 Minutes in this article. Some, like the deputy Aurélien Taché, plead for the youth, asking for the extension of the RSA and the payment of the training courses from the first day (the detail here). On the Medef side, Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux awaits the complete lifting of the containment, because "the faster we deconfigure, the faster we will save jobs," he said.
