Clément Beaune, the French Secretary of State for European Affairs officialy supported the PHS at the French Congress of home employment, which took place in Marseille on 8 July 2021. Only 6 months before the French Presidency of the EU Council (01/2022 – 06/2022), he stressed the major role of PHS workers during the crisis and called for a reflection on their status, their remuneration and the needs of the households employing them.
