Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Let me state that the 22% unemployment rate is real enough, and an issue that needs to be solved. And more generally the lowish employment rate in France (mainly from the lower rates for the old and the young) is surely something that could use reform.

But what's not clear to me yet is how serious the low employment rate of the young is. Is it just because they are studying and do not need to work while studying, because it's free? Or is it that they are studying long than they'd want because they cannot find work?

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
