    With its reform of social assistance, the government Couillard seeks to create a workforce that is cheap for employers, declared the Coalition’s objective dignity.

    The grouping of some twenty national organizations denounces the draft regulation, published Wednesday in the official Gazette, which will allow for the implementation of the program employment Objective.

    It will require new claimants of social assistance to participate in a program of reintegration to work, back to school, or a social follow-up, particularly for drug addicts.

    “The only two organizations that have applauded the minister when tabling the bill, that is the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec and the canadian Federation of independent business, stressed on Wednesday the co-spokesperson of the Coalition objective dignity, Serge Petitclerc. These people grow in the back of the government for years that there are more people who accept their jobs.”

    “It is purely ideological,” he said about the reform of the minister of Employment and social Solidarity, François Blais.

    The Coalition also denounced the filing of the regulation, which will be the subject of a consultation of 60 days, in the middle of summer. “This is the best way to ensure that it falls under the silence,” says Serge Petitclerc.
