The French state is living up to its famed principle of “solidarité” once again, by handing out Christmas bonuses to 2.3 million of the country’s most hard up individuals. But it’s not all good news.
A longstanding French tradition is once again being fulfilled this week.
In the name of solidarity France will hand out its traditional Christmas bonus to those most in need.
This week the French state will share out around €500 million between 2.3 million people.
The amount each person will receive hasn’t changed for the last four years, meaning individuals will receive €152.45 and couples with two children will get €320.14.
