A comparative study of working conditions in Ireland and France in 2008
- A proposed international taxation of foreign exchange to limit the pressures of capital mobility
- ?A grain of sand? in the workings of foreign exchange transactions
- An original project which aimed to discourage "speculation that perform forward and backward a few weeks"
- The reinterpretation of the project and its extensions: a roundabout idea
- The expected benefits of the tax
- Increased autonomy of monetary policy
- A decrease in the volatility of foreign exchange market
- Better protection against currency crises
- Revenue received by the Tobin tax
- A tax often described as utopian and meets many objections to the benefit of more realistic alternatives
- The introduction of the tax would raise practical difficulties
- Implementation difficult
- Terms of employment and revenue management which remain to be found
- Efficiency challenge
- The perceived risks associated with the implementation of the tax
- Proposals for controls on capital movements alternatives, but remain just as difficult to implement
- The experience of the deposit has not convinced more
- The CBCT, another promising tax plan?
The purpose of this report is to analyze the differences and similarities between France and Ireland with respect to working conditions. While both countries have a common policy to protect employees, they also have different ways to maintain and ensure those standards through legislation.
Working conditions refer to a general environment in which employees exist at their place of work. They are characterized by:
-The level of risk: the danger of the work performed
?The struggle quotient: whether the tasks are easy or difficult, pleasant or unpleasant
-The environment: the comfort of the workplace
-The social relationships at the workplace and so on.
A general indicator of working conditions would be the degree of employee satisfaction in their workplace.
In France, the legal work week and full time is 35 hours and the working day must not exceed 12 hours.
