This information has raised quite a stir in the political class. “The Medef we have cruised on. (…) It’s been four and a half years they tell us that they will self-regulate,” insurgent Karine Berger, mp and head of the firm’s ideas and project for Vincent Peillon for the primary organized by the PS, on LCI. “Renault has not only been helped by the power of the public but, in particular, has been part of the companies who have led its employees to reduce their vacation days and to reduce their wages for periods ranging from one year to two years. So Carlos Ghosn is paid on the efforts of wages and time of work of its own employees, and that is unacceptable.”
An anger shared by Richard Ferrand, secretary general of power up!, support of Emmanuel Macron to the presidential election. “It goes without saying that this is still morally shocking to discover that one can win like that, on a manoeuvre linked to the capital, at the bottom a lot more than a lot of French people earn in a lifetime. It is always the system a bit of a paradox with these things which are clearly legal, and at the same time shocking,” he said on RTL. For François de Rugy, a candidate ecologist at the primary organized by the PS, interviewed on RMC, “this is legal but it is very shocking because it is a wage scale utterly fantastic in the Renault group”.
Yves Jégo, vice-president of the UDI, says. “I see that Renault is a company that has positive results. At the bottom, if the head of Renault, because it has shares of the company, key earnings because it has well-managed the company with or participated in running the business, it seems to me to be also what is the capitalism in our world today,” he said on Europe 1, while admitting: “I would be a worker at Renault, working at the MINIMUM wage, I would be shocked.”
Also quick to respond, the CGT of Renault was accused Wednesday in a news release Carlos Ghosn as his “cynicism exacerbated” and “remuneration indecent”. The union compares this sum of 6 million euros to the situation of a “majority of the employees of the Renault group, whose purchasing power keeps dropping the name of a ‘wage moderation necessary’ and which are considered only as ‘cost to reduce’”. “Carlos Ghosn is here rewarded for the achievement of its objectives contained in the agreement of competitiveness, 2013-2016″ says the CGT denounced the “job cuts” (9.200 departures on these three years for 3,000 new hires a portion of which will be completed in 2017) and the “precariousness” with an increase in the number of temporary workers.
