France should do more to ease the transition of unskilled young people into employment. The government should give priority to helping young people the furthest removed from the job market and to strengthening the social protection of the most disadvantaged, according to a new report by the OECD.
OECD has launched a series of reports in 16 countries including France. Each report contains a survey of the main barriers to employment for young people, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school to work.
Angel Gurría, Secrétaire général de l’OCDE ; Laurent Wauquiez, Secrétaire d’Etat à l’emploi ; et Martin Hirsch, Haut commissaire à la jeunesse, présenteront les conclusions de ce rapport lors d’une conférence de presse au ministère de l’économie et des finances à Bercy, ce même jour à 16h30.
