Emmanuel Macron scribbles notes, sends a few smiles and then speaks for half an hour. "We live in a world jostled by transitions. Unemployment is today and for too long a part of our daily life.

Val-de-Marne has caught up

The Val-de-Marne, which was rather late compared to other departments of its stratum has since caught up. "We have launched calls for project sponsors and in 2 years we have gone from 30 to 45 integration structures. At present, nearly 2000 people benefit each year. This can take the form of an intermediary association, a workshop or integration project or an insertion company. They are aimed at people quite far from employment. They can relearn skills and knowledge that will allow them to reintegrate into the workplace after life sometimes difficult ", explains Didier Tillet, director of the departmental unit of Val-de-Marne Direccte (direction of competition, consumption, employment, work).
