At least it has the merit of being clear. According to the results of the survey Odoxa realized* with Dentsu consulting for Le Figaro and franceinfo, the activity picks up well and a little in France. But very slowly and the return to "normal" is not for tomorrow.see also : can A company impose on its employees a lower compensation?
1/ France has not yet returned to normal activities
A little more than half of the respondents (53% precisely) indicates go now almost every day at his place of work, a level that rises to more than 6 in 10 (62% exactly, that is 10 points higher than a month ago) including those that alternate between travel and teleworking. Ditto for the French who always practise telework, the share of which fell in any one month to 15%, or even for those who are still in part-time unemployment, part-time, in which the proportion was reduced to 8%. "Nowadays, managers are often people who do management really but exercise functions in the universe of the services. Quite logically, they are the ones who make the most use of teleworking, observes Gaël Sliman, the president of Odoxa. 55% of executives are currently working at home, total or partial, which is 4 times more than employees and workers (12%). The Parisians are more followers of telework that the provincial: 30% against 23%".
2/ The fear of losing employment remains strong
there are also better on the side of the fears on the job. More than 4 in 10 (41% accurately) say they are more worried about their jobs since a few weeks, compared to two thirds (66% exactly) two months ago. "The déconfinement and the prospect of output of the health crisis that is emerging now, therefore, enabled to decrease substantially the level of concern of the French, but it remains very high," said Gael Sliman. Importantly, this average masks significant disparities according to age and social category of the assets surveyed. "First of all, a close correlation exists between the age of the assets surveyed, and their propensity to fear of losing their jobs, he adds. A continuum emerges with age: only 29% of concern among 18-24-year-olds, and 39% among 25-34 year olds, 42% in the 35-49 years, and finally 43% of 50-64 year-olds".
very strong cleavages exist then sociologically on the subject. "Then the executives are "only" 36% say "more worried", the workers are 49% and the self-employed (craftsmen, farmers, small traders and small "bosses") are 58% believe that their business is small, that is to say, their employment, could die of the Covid-19, full the boss of Odoxa. Find solutions to save the lives of these small companies and small shops thus appears as something vital in the eyes of the French".
3/ The French refuse the blackmail wages against employment
Remains that the French, if they fear for their jobs, are not willing to accept anything to preserve it. Thus, about 7 out of 10 consider it unacceptable that the salary reductions proposed by some companies in economic difficulty to their staff to avoid redundancies. Again, there are great disparities depending on the categories surveyed. "Logically, the self-employed workers (craftsmen and small-traders are particularly affected and concerned about the future of their jobs and their company) are the most likely to approve this in principle... but even them, are very much divided on its merits: "only" 49% of independents approve of it against as many (51%) disapprove of, note as well Gaël Sliman. The officers, closest to the managements of large companies are also more likely than average to agree on this principle (43%), but are still a clear majority to be opposed to this. In fact, on principle, this idea is mostly frowned upon regardless of social origin, the territory, the age, or even the direction-partisan (52% rejection of LR to 86% from BIA) of the respondents". We note one exception to this: the supporters of the majority LREM who are a majority (53% against 47%) to approve. "On this point, so they are "more right" than the supporters LR (an inverse proportion disagreed with this principle)", note the pattern of Odoxa.
4/ Made in France, in response, has of the future
conversely, the French are in favour of 82% to a relocation on the national territory in the production of certain industries, even if this increases in the end the final price for the consumer. "Politically, the issue is the same consensus: more than three-quarters of the supporters of all the political parties there say they are in favour (73% with the RN to 94% with LR, 92% of LaREM and 91% from the Untamed)," says Gaël Sliman. The Made in France is progressing so well in their minds. All that remains is to translate it into practice. It all depends on the level of price increase...
