L'expérience française de réduction du temps de travail : moins d'emplois et plus d'inégalités

Listed author(s):
  • Pierre Cahuc

[fre] Cet article suggère, à la lumière des évaluations économiques des expé- riences de réduction du temps de travail, que les éléments relatifs à la réduction du temps de travail des dispositifs Robien et Aubry ont vraisemblablement des effets négatifs sur l'emploi. En outre, l'expérience française de réduction du temps de travail risque fort d'accroître les inégalités au profit de salariés bénéficiant d'emplois stables et aux dépens des travailleurs précaires. [eng] Departing from the economic evaluations of the reduction of working time policies, this paper suggests that the current french experience of working time reduction is likely to destroy jobs and to increase inequalities, at workers with fragile jobs expense and to the benefit of employees with stables jobs.
