Thursday, January 14, the government announced the establishment of a general curfew from 6 p.m. throughout France. The Minister of the Economy, Bruno Le Maire, announced new measures to help companies impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. “It is good that there is economic aid and financial aid (…). On the other hand, what we can criticize are the directions taken by the government to pour money in a way that is not very targeted and very oriented towards large companies.“, explains Émilie Cariou, deputy of the Meuse, co-president of the New Democrats.
“Those who are in great suffering are businesses, very small businesses, they are those who support our territories and France.“Reminds Émilie Cariou. Bruno Le Maire said he was working with parliamentarians to lower the threshold of one million euros, penalizing small structures.”The bulk of additional aid is the 20 billion tax cut. The chosen tax is not paid by traders and artisans. For six months, traders and artisans have only had access to loans guaranteed by the State“, deplores the member. Émilie Cariou recalls the difficulty for small and very small businesses to assume the fixed costs.
