The system intended for them, whether they are students, looking for work, seasonal workers, extras or even, for 18-25 year olds, in great precariousness, has been expanded.

Already existing measures have been strengthened and others created to help this particularly vulnerable public.

"We are going to create 20,000 student jobs, the mission of which will be to support dropout students", declared the Prime Minister.

The device, which initially provided for 1,600 jobs, has therefore been revised upwards, with an investment of 50 million euros.

The four-month contracts (between December and March), "at the rate of 10 hours per week", will be awarded by the universities.

Student tutors must have at least a level equivalent to a third year of the license to help first or second year students in difficulty.

Emergency financial aid for precarious students.

Some 45,000 additional young people will receive emergency aid from the CROUS (Regional Center for University and School Works), whose budget will be doubled to 56 million euros.

This financial boost - of which neither the amount nor the terms have yet been detailed - will however provide a boost to students in precarious situations to help them "find accommodation and food" , said Jean Castex.

Monthly help for young people looking for work.

To support young graduates looking for a first job, the Minister of Labor Elisabeth Borne has announced the creation of aid "of up to 500 euros per month".

It will be tailor-made.

This device, budgeted at 140 million euros, could benefit 50,000 young people.

Aid of 900 euros for seasonal workers and extras.

Precarious, seasonal, intermittent or extras workers - most of them in the hotel and catering or event sectors - who “worked more than 60% of the time in 2019” will be able to benefit from aid of 900 euros up to 'in February 2021. Some 70,000 young people could be affected, according to Jean Castex.

“Many arrive at the end of rights, we assure the Ministry of Labor.

If they worked 60% of the days in 2019 and they do not have an income that exceeds 900 euros, they will benefit from all the assistance, net of tax, in November, paid by Pôle emploi probably early December.

»In case of resuming a job?

"There is no question of penalizing those who find missions," says one to the cabinet of Elisabeth Borne.

Pôle emploi will then deduct 40% of the salary at 900 euros in order, if possible, to pay the difference to the beneficiary.

Example: if a seasonal worker earns 1,500 euros (40% of this salary is equivalent to 600 euros), he will receive 300 euros from Pôle emploi.
