The country was no longer recorded as rate of net job creation since 2007. The private sector (non-agricultural) earned in the course of the year 191.700 additional posts (+1,2%), according to an estimate by the Insee published on Friday. There is a strong acceleration, after one year 2015 which had seen 99.000 posts to create and three years in the red in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
at the End of 2016, the actual merchants have reached 16,16 million people, a level unprecedented since the end of 2008.
“In 10 years, we have been able to reconstruct the lost jobs and create more“, is met François Hollande during a trip to Valencia. According to the head of the State, “innovation” and “competitiveness found” of the companies who have enabled these results, “in spite of a growth rate (1.1% in 2016 as in 2015, editor’s NOTE) which is not the highest“.
“The recovery of our economy is now fully confirmed“, has, for its part, welcomed the minister of Labour, Myriam El Khomri, in a press release.
The year 2016 ending in beauty, with 62.200 job creations (+0.4%) in the 4th quarter. “This is the seventh consecutive quarter of increase, 300.300, the number of net new jobs created” on the period, stressed Ms. El Khomri.
On the 4th quarter as year-on-year, the employment market is being driven by the services and the acting. In 2016, the tertiary sector has created, out of acting, 151.300 positions (+1.4%) and temporary employment 69.300 positions (+11.8 per cent). With 654.100 positions, temporary employment has reached its highest level since early 2008. The sector is regarded as a precursor of trends in employment.
- Three years late –
for the industry (-23.200, 0.7%) and construction (-5.700, -0,4%), two sectors lastingly affected, their situation continued to deteriorate. The plants have lost, in 15 years, nearly one million jobs, or a quarter of their workforce, while the building has lost more than 200,000 jobs since 2008. The hemorrhage was, however, almost to a standstill in the construction.
In total, the jobs created by 2016, many more than the expected increase of the active population (+the 126,000 according to the Insee), are a good omen in view of the publication next Thursday of the unemployment rate at the end of 2016.
The 3rd quarter, the indicator stood at 9.7% in metropolitan france, and 10.0% in France, down 0.2 percentage point from the beginning of 2016.
Pôle emploi, he has already published its figures for the full year 2016. On a year, 107.400 unemployed (-3,0%) have left the lists of the operator in metropolitan france.
But despite the good trend, the situation remains very poor, with between 2,81 and 3.47 million people unemployed, depending on whether one relies on the latest figures from the Insee, or by the Pôle emploi.
The decline in unemployment and the resumption of employment are, moreover, accompanied by an increase in precarious, as illustrated by the outbreak (+5,5%) in the number of registered job seekers in categories B and C to Pôle emploi, which perform a small activity.
And the upgrade comes with three years of delay. François Hollande, who has resigned in December to run for a second term, had originally pledged his famous “inversion of the unemployment curve” for 2013. The results came in “later than I had planned“, granted the president during his New Year’s greetings.
tired of waiting, the voters, the socialists have chosen, to succeed him, a candidate, Benoît Hamon, who has fought the economic policy of the quinquennium.
