The reform of the Active Solidarity Income (RSA) focuses on the implementation of intensive support for RSA beneficiaries in the search for work. This new reform is announced on Tuesday December 12 by the Minister of Labour, Olivier Dussopt at the National Assembly.

At the start of the year, the Court of Auditors reportedly showed that since its launch 7 years ago, 42% of RSA beneficiaries are still out of work. The absence of efficient support for professional reintegration is one of the shortcomings of the Active Solidarity Income system. The new reform tends to correct this problem.

The government has selected 19 out of 43 departments to experiment with the new vocational reintegration reform for 1 year, namely Aisne, Aveyron, Bouches-du-Rhône, Côte-d’Or, Creuse, Eure, Ille-et-Vilaine, Loire-Atlantique, Loiret, Mayenne, Metropolis of Lyon, the North, Pyrénées-Atlantiques, Réunion, Seine-Saint-Denis, Somme, Vosges, Yonne and Yvelines.

This experiment will be used to present the project ‘France Travail’ to replace ‘Pôle Emploi’ in the near future. This is a project that President Emmanuel Macron announced during the presentation of his program during the presidential elections in April 2022. According to him, France Travail would be the key to leading France towards full employment.
