Are domestics back?


Over the past few decades, France has actively been supporting jobs in services to individuals, to the point that the sector currently involves 1.2 million employees. However, this apparent success belies a strategy that creates few jobs relative to its public cost. It could also contributes to social polarization, with the “new poor” serving the “new rich”. Nathalie Morel, co-author of the book Le retour des domestiques [Domestics are back] (ed. Seuil) and researcher at the Center for European Studies and Comparative Politics and the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies, explores the reasons for this growing inequality, and considers fairer policies.
