The proposals of the politician Éric Piolle, mayor of Grenoble, on the subjects of employment, the economy, pensions during the primary of the environmentalists of 2021 to present a green candidate for the presidential election of 2022.
There is tax justice. We must transform the mandate of the European Central Bank, so that it is unemployment and the climate and not inflation and growth. We have negotiation engines; we can put the treaties back on the table with 14 leaders of the various countries, that requires preparation, with a little tactics.
There needs to be an exceptional tax on the sales of major ecommerce brands. The French art of living is massively attacked by these gigantic shops.
Ten years ago the life expectancy of a washing machine was 10 years, today it is 7 years. 10,000 workshops must be created, which represents 40,000 jobs, to repair these machines.
It is necessary to set up the climate wealth tax, by taxing the most wealthy polluters (with assets exceeding 1.3 million euros), taxing the actions of polluting companies. The climate ISF can generate 8 billion euros in income. The wealthiest 1% of the world's population emit twice as many greenhouse gas emissions as the less fortunate 50%. There is therefore an absurd inequality here. This measure would make it possible to find the necessary funds to finance our social model, for investment in the transition as well.
Instead of giving the financing of the debt to private banks which make indecent rates of profit, it is necessary to resume this management in public and that this serves to accentuate the transitions.
We must cancel the unemployment insurance reform, which cuts benefits for the poorest by up to 40%.
With the ecological project, we have estimated at 1.5 million the jobs that we are going to create, with 200,000 jobs in the public sector, common jobs, and 600,000 commercial jobs. The goal is to lower greenhouse gas emissions, get up in the mornings and do a job that makes sense. We must secure and support major changes, whether in aeronautics, foundry, automotive, by relying on the skills of employees. We can create 15,000 jobs in the automotive engine sector to adapt vehicles.
Thus, ecology brings the creation of 1.5 million jobs in different categories but also job destruction, especially in travel where it has been estimated 170,000 job destruction. In these strategic sectors, we need a guarantee of employment to keep skills by maintaining salaries, providing training, supporting this industry transformation. The change is complex, it is the responsibility of society. We must renationalize companies if necessary, have a bicycle policy, relocate to France, install wind turbines.
Passenger transport and food delivery companies should employ people as employees and not as self-employed persons. We must legally support the employees. We must reclaim the common goods.
The legal retirement age must not go beyond 62 years. We are against a universal points system which is unfair. The hardship account needs to be strengthened. The question of retirement is to know how we distribute goods and wealth, how we will seek new activities that we need. The activity rate of seniors is increasing, but while they are unemployed. The lengthening of the working time creates old poor. Healthy life expectancy decreases. We have to discuss our conditions for sharing the country's wealth.
