Non au retour du tâcheronnage ! | Alternatives Economiques

Le constat est alarmant dans le monde du travail. La pénurie de travail et la stigmatisation à l’embauche offrent un boulevard aux plates-formes américaines pour recruter. Ce modèle, si on peut le qualifier ainsi, fragilise ces nouveaux embauchés et produit encore plus de précarité avec l’absence de protection sociale.  Dénoncer ces méthodes est bien là l’essentiel, car il s’agit en effet d’une vraie cause, d’un combat pour la préservation de notre modèle social unique au monde.

Between 2000 and 2050, the proportion of the world’s population aged 60 years and older will double, from about 11% to 22%. The absolute number of people 60 years and older is projected to increase from 900 million in 2015 to 1.4 billion by 2030, to 2.1 billion by 2050, and to 3.2 billion in 2100 (1). Between 2025 and 2030, life expectancy in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) will increase to a projected 80.7 years for women and 74.9 years for men; in Canada and the United States of America, those numbers are projected to be even higher: 83.3 years for women and 79.3 years for men (2).
