France braced for biggest national strike in years

France is enduring severe disruption as millions of workers threaten to strike Thursday in protest at being forced to retire later or face reduced pensions. School and transport workers will join police, lawyers and hospital and airport staff in a general walkout. The largest nationwide strike in years was agreed by unions unhappy with plans for a universal points-based pension system.

Pensions are ridiculous. People need to learn how to save. If anything, they should be protesting for higher wages.
