Intermittents du spectacle et assurance-chômage
Retour sur un diagnostic convenu (1980-2003) Le système d'indemnisation-chômage des intermittents du spectacle est régulièrement présenté comme intrinsèquement déséquilibré.

Inquiry into recruitment and employment in the meat and poultry processing sector
Report of the findings and recommendations In October 2008, the Commission launched an inquiry into recruitment and employment in the meat and poultry processing sector in England and Wales.
