Jean-Luc Mélenchon announced on Sunday that the Smic would finally increase to 1,500 euros net, to take inflation into account, in the event of the success of the New Popular, Ecologist and Social Union (Nupes) in the next legislative elections.

Since May 1, the monthly minimum wage has been 1,645.58 euros gross, or 1,302.64 euros net. The program of LFI, the Future in common, provided until then a minimum wage of 1,400 euros net, but, answering on France 3 to a question on this proposal rendered “obsolete” by the effects of inflation, the former candidate in the presidential election and “candidate” for the post of Prime Minister, announced an adjustment.

“I am therefore announcing to you today that the 15% increase will be observed in relation to the price level,” he continued. So the minimum wage at 1,500? “Well yes, by force of circumstance, we are here to advance people’s lives, not to block it,” he argued. “Since the Smic is now at 1,300 euros due to inflation, we will increase it to 1,500 euros net per month”, he then tweeted.

“There will be a mandatory salary conference by branch as soon as I am elected Prime Minister”, also repeated the LFI deputy from Bouches-du-Rhône, who is not standing for legislative elections.

He takes stock of the Taha Bouhafs case

Jean-Luc Mélenchon also returned to the case of Taha Bouhafs, the militant journalist who finally withdrew his candidacy in the constituency of Vénissieux (Rhône) after being warned of the opening of an internal investigation for accusations of sexual violence. .

“I would like to underline the odious character of the racist campaign against Taha Bouhafs (even before these accusations) and that will remain because that is when Fabien Roussel intervened”, underlined Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

“Personally I remain in shock to have seen a political leader of our family intervene in the midst of a racist campaign to attack someone,” he added.

He distinguished this point “from the question posed by sexist and sexual violence that our commission resolved” in “five days”, since “in our time, the voice of women is a priority and it is they who are believed to be ‘on board “. La France insoumise announced on Wednesday that it had opened an internal investigation after accusations of sexual violence against Taha Bouhafs.
