Inflation is putting a lot of French people to the test. So much so that a father returned to live with his parents with his 7-year-old daughter to be able to make ends meet.

Kevin Galland, a sewer worker from Besançon, did not think he had to choose to return to live with his parents. But the successive rise in the price of fuel and energy pushed him there.

For the regional daily The Republican East , the forties testifies: “ I have about 1,300 euros per month. After all these years of work, this is not normal “, he notes. While he has been practicing his profession for 20 years, Kevin points out the difficulty that this entails. ' You still have to be solid to do this job, and not everyone wants to do it, it doesn't necessarily make you want to. It's not easy every day, I'm tired ».

After being forced to give up his car to opt for the bicycle because of the increase in fuel, Kevin has resigned himself to returning to live with his parents with his 7-year-old daughter since the inflation has grown in size. ' Life is far too expensive to have an apartment. If I take a small one at 700 euros per month, I will not be able to meet our needs “explains the sewer.

For this father who has already lived without electricity, without heater and without food, it is unthinkable to imagine giving this life to your daughter. Returning to his parents' home was therefore necessary for Kevin and his daughter to get by: ' It's sad not to be able to get out of it. We laugh, but we are not listened to. I tell myself that I am still lucky to have my parents, to have a roof. This is not the case of everyone “, he admits.
