Aurore Bergé supports the deletion of an additional public holiday
The LREM spokesperson said she was "persuaded" that the French would agree "if 100% of the revenue of the day of solidarity are devoted to the reduction of their taxes or the financing of the Ehpad".
The spokeswoman LREM said she was "convinced" that the French would agree "if 100% of the revenue of the day of solidarity are devoted to lowering their taxes or financing of Ehpad".
Delete an additional holiday? Aurore Bergé believes in the JDD that "it's a necessary first step". For the MP and spokeswoman LREM, the state must indeed find resources, and this "can come from an increase in working time". One way to implement this "work plus" would be to "go through the creation of a new day of solidarity to finance the care of addiction and old age".
"I am convinced that the French are willing to work more if we explain that 100% of the revenue of the day of solidarity are devoted to the reduction of their taxes or the financing of the Ehpad", added Aurore Bergé in the columns of the seventh-day weekly. Is it because we did not explain it to them or because they do not believe it? In any case, the French are mostly in disagreement with the statement that they must "work more", according to an Ifop survey published in the JDD .
A narrow majority of French people opposed to working more
In detail, 54% of them are opposed. This is especially true of supporters of the Left (62% of those in the PS, 65% of those in insubordinate France) and the National Gathering (67%). But disparities are also important depending on the age of the respondents. The over-65s, that is, probably a majority of people who are not working or more, are 67% in favor of working more. In contrast, under 35, 56% of respondents are against.
A second division is observed according to the activities carried out by each. Working more convinced 55% of artisans and traders and 61% of business leaders. But only 39% of private sector employees, 35% of public employees, 29% of workers and 26% of job seekers.
