Thinking Of Moving To France To Find Work? You might be in for a shock. While lefties, i.e. human-like creatures that lack the power of rational thought) will tell you Britain is the only EU member where people think that those authoritarian EU regulations that stifle progress and favour immigrants over long term residents in jobs, housing etc., a look around Europe tells a very different story. Yesterday we reported that the Neo – Nazi Social Democrat government of Sweden has passed a law making it a criminal offence to criticize their immigration policy whic involves plans to import fifty million immigrants from the third world into that nation of less than ten million people (OK, fifty million may be a slight exaggeration but you get my point.)
Sweden passes law to criminalize any criticism of immigration
A new law will come into effect in Sweden after Christmas 2014, that will allow people to be prosecuted for criticizing immigration or politicians unwillingness to tackle the issue. The Constitutional Committees report has been voted for in parliament, seen in a letter from the Parliamentary Offices. Member of Parliament Andrew Norlén, member of the Constitutional Committee, has been pushing the issue and he says it will rapidly become a deterrent.
I do not think it takes very many prosecutions before a signal is transmitted in the community that the internet is not a lawless country, the sheriff is back in town Norlén said during a one-sided debate on the issue in Swedish parliament.
This new law is meant to stop Swedish people from complaining about their country being turned into a third world nation.
Without freedom of speech there can be no democracy. If you are not allowed to say certain things then parties that support your ideas cannot exist and Sweden is at high risk of turning into a communist USSR-like country.
Meanwhile in France, thanks to loonytoons economic and emplyment policies and an open doors approach to immigration finding a permanent job is like winning the lottery, and new figures suggest that it’s getting harder and harder with companies overwhelmingly preferring to hand out temporary contacts.
Short-term job contracts and the equivalent of zero hours contracts dominated the French labour market last year, representing more than eight out of ten new hires, cementing the notion that landing a permanent job in France is like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The figures, released by the Labour Ministrys statistics office Dares (link to french language site), showed that short-term CDDs (Contrat à Durée Déterminée) represented 83.6 percent of all new hires in 2013, up 2.3 percentage points from 2012.
But by the second quarter this year, the situation had got even worse. Dares said that by then, the number of temporary hires had climbed to a staggering 84.2 percent a new historic high.
The agency said the trend was hitting all age categories, but that the number of permanent positions handed out had seen a particularly strong decline among those aged between 15 and 49.
Despite government efforts to reverse the trend by slapping employers with higher charges for very short contracts often lasting just a few days Dares said employers are still more willing to take the hit of extra costs than transforming such contracts into permanent jobs, known as CDI (Contract à Durée Indéterminé) contracts.
The agency also said the duration of short-term contracts are continuing to shrink, with about half of them lasting ten days or less in 2013, compared with 14 days or less the year before. Around a quarter of them didnt last longer than two days, it said.
The figures come as France faces record-high unemployment levels, at 10.4 percent, mostly hitting the countrys young.
President François Hollande has said he will not stand for re-election in 2017 unless he manages to cut the unemployment rate.
His presidency seems to hinge on the so-called “responsibility pact” which will cut payroll taxes for employers by 40 billion in return for companies boosting recruitment. He has pledged to create half a million jobs by 2017.
Unemployment falling? The Great Statistical Con Trick
President Barack Hussein Obama in his “State Of The Union” speech earlier this week was the president’s claimed that his administration had turned the economy around and was creating millions of ‘new jobs’ every year. The US Labor Department claims the economy created 292,000 jobs in December alone … In spite of the US economy having created almost 6 million jobs over the last two years according to official figures, more Americans than ever (93 million according to estimates) are out of work.
The Great Recovery Illusion
An audience member was quickly on his feet to point out that the figure was misleading as people in zero hours contracts and part time jobs are classed as ‘in work’ to get them off the statistics. The young man could also have reminded the programmes studio and television audience that people who are out of work for two years are reclassified as ‘not economically active’ and removed from the unemployment register. Even if these people would love to work and …
