In return, the companies "will ensure that these same employees continued employment during, at a minimum, its mobilization period and beyond if the economic situation of the company allows it", says the text.

But how far will you go to the financial mismanagement, so that we no longer have the slightest fifrelin?! All this without doubt to be able to present themselves in a good position for the elections of 2022. It is demagogic and irresponsible. What part of the money advanced by the State will it ultimately expended in pure loss to support lame ducks, which, of all ways, will end up on the mat ?BSY91le 26/05/2020 16:56
