I think it would be better if Jerome came out and actually argued that there is causation, because then we'd have a falsifiable hypothesis, but he's being a politician. </snark>

Abstract: This text gives an analytical review of the first main estimations of the impacts of the Aubry's law on employment in France. Both macro and micro approaches seem to converge to about 300 000 net job creations in the short-term, mainly in pioneer firms ("Aubry I" firms). However, because these first movers have made the choice to anticipate the legal commitment, these estimations can be affected by an auto-selection bias. The latter have not been yet robustly corrected. Further researches are thus required to confirm positive impacts of shorter working time on employment.
