According to the latest data from Prism’Emploi, the French association of employment agencies, the number of temporary Eu Workers in France increased by 1.8% in 2018. That rise equates to the creation of almost 13,000 new full-time equivalent jobs. However, the growth was not uniform across sectors. During the fourth quarter of 2018, the sector with the highest growth was the services sector, with a growth rate of 6.4%, followed by industry with a decrease of 0.4%.

Grow At An Impressive Rate

In the May 2017 data from Pole Emploi, French employers employed 606,700 temporary workers, an increase of 29 percent over the previous month but a decrease of nearly two percent from April. Another study found that the average number of temporary jobs was 414,400 per day, an increase of 9.5% from the previous year and up by a further 6% from the previous month. Although the numbers may seem low, the numbers are encouraging, and show that French workers are not facing the economic recession as badly as many Americans think they are.

The study also noted that France has a particularly high proportion of youth unemployment compared to other industrialized countries. The combination of high employer payroll taxes and a minimum wage may have a significant impact on the employment of young people. Furthermore, many young people lack the necessary skills that employers are looking for, resulting in a high rate of unemployment among 15-to-24-year-olds. Further, France’s youth unemployment rate is twice that of the baccalaureate group.
