As many middle and working classes have problems with purchasing power, Bruno Le Maire also indicated that social minima would be increased by 4.6% "approximately". "That is 28 euros per month for the RSA." In a context where inflation was still 4.8% in August, over one year, according to INSEE figures, the rise in prices remains the "first fight" of the minister. The member of the government also wants to "bring inflation to a more reasonable level, around 2%, in the course of 2024.»
