Xavier Bertrand urged the government. In an interview with the Sunday Newspaper on 12 July, the president ex-RL of the region Hauts-de-France considers that it is necessary to "go much faster" in the economic recovery of the country for it to be able to cash "the first shock of the crisis" at the start of the year. "We were promised a massive plan for youth employment for the beginning of July. There is still nothing, " laments the former head of the Republican and potential presidential candidate in 2022, suggesting that measures be voted on as early as July in the draft finance law in discussion at Parliament. For him, " the people are not waiting for theatrics, but concrete measures. The absolute emergency is employment, employment, employment ! ".

On the other hand, Xavier Bertrand says it is opposed to the implementation of the reform of the unemployment insurance program, which "will be a source of vulnerability for the unemployed" and the pension that is " neither clear, nor brave, nor fair ". He expects Emmanuel Macron, which should specify his cap during a television interview on 14 July, that he "told the truth" on "the job and the health crisis" and that it " confirms that France will be the first country in the world served with the vaccine of Sanofi, a French company ". Prime minister Jean Castex, his former chief of staff, Xavier Bertrand assures that " it's a good man, who reveals all Emmanuel Macron is not. Jean Castex has a local base and feet on the ground, when the president prefers theatrics ".
