He reiterated at the beginning of September, at the end of a government seminar at the Elysee Palace, the need

"imperatively to strengthen the training of job seekers"

, in particular for long periods.

According to the latest official data, France (excluding Mayotte) had 3.026 million long-term job seekers in the second quarter, registered for more than a year (category A, B, C), with more than 1.5 million registered for more than two years.

50% of the unemployed are long-term

Long-term job seekers now represent 50.3% of registrants, the 50% threshold having been crossed in January. Without revealing all the contours of the plan, which must be presented soon, Élisabeth Borne tells the


that the government

"has gone from one in ten unemployed people trained at the start of the five-year term to one in six"

and claims to want to

"go further".

“Business leaders tell us that they have positions for which they cannot find employees.

It's also frustrating for a long-term job seeker to feel like they're standing by while the economy picks up, ”

she says.

“We are committed to ensuring that all long-term job seekers will be contacted by a Pôle Emploi adviser by the end of the year.

And we are going to develop the situation in a company by giving the means to the employers who wish it so that they train these job seekers as close as possible to their needs ”

, she says.

and which will be funded, adds Élisabeth Borne, specifying that the means of the public operator,

"which had reinforcements during the crisis, will be maintained to implement this plan".
