I wrote only a few weeks ago about the rise of start-ups in France, a rise that feels revolutionary in a country where job security is still perceived as sacred (something less ethical employers unfortunately use to their advantage by repeatedly firing employees just before the end of their probation period...).

This article makes the case that while this rise is necessary and in some ways positive, it carries with it a dose of destruction. Namely, it anticipates that 3 million jobs will have been cut by 2025 as a result of start ups, while precarious roles flourish. It herald the ends of job security as France knows it.

There seems to be little point in fighting the change, the state and its citizens should find ways to embrace it.
