France: New benefits to help 18-25s

    Oh, this is a good idea.  A better idea would be for the young people to have the opportunity to an apprenticeship with a licensed plumber or electrician and give them the money.   This will just lead to more time for people to be on the streets protesting on how bad it is in Spain and France and how the government wants to raise the retirement age to, say, 62.
Come to think of it, we have already implemented many of the socialist state ideas.  Just one of the great Obamacare changes in health care is  for all CHILDREN be covered on their parent's policy till age 26! 

TWO new kinds of benefit to help 18- to 25-year-olds will be launched this year, the government has said.
There will be a benefit for young people without qualifications, who are facing difficulties finding work, and another for young graduates who have been unemployed for at least six months.
They are aimed at those who are too young for RSA income support and not eligible for unemployment benefit (which is for people who have previously worked). They follow a promise by President Sarkozy last year to help this age group.
A benefit called the RCA (revenu contractualisé d’autonomie) will be paid monthly for two years to young people who promise to actively look for a job or undertake training. It will be €250 per month, dropping progressively in the second year, and claimants will be able to retain part of the benefit even while working if the job is at the minimum wage.
A second kind of RCA will be for people who have at least a bachelor’s degree. In return for a monthly benefit, the graduate will have to take part in a job-seeking scheme run by Apec, an association involved with management-level employment.

   Happy job hunting, now shut off that TV and pick up your room, you do spend so much time in it..........
