Yeah, I had no idea how to translate that, and I have to type while I listen so can't look it up in my dictionary. It's "décrochage"?

"dropping out"? Meaning, I suppose, of the workforce...

It's more about the state of France, so I'm not sure how to say it.

Then it would be "getting outpaced", "getting left behind".
