Is the RSA Bad for Foreign Workers?

The proposed Revenue de Solidarité Active, which has already run into trouble on the right because it is to be financed by a new tax on interest and dividends, may be running into trouble on the left as well, where some argue that it penalizes foreign workers in France.
