French PM defies unions with pension overhaul

France’s PM Édouard Philippe Wednesday unveiled details of a planned pension system overhaul that will make younger generations work longer and has sparked nationwide strikes. The legal retirement age would remain at 62, Philippe said, but workers would be encouraged to work until 64. Unions said the new plan would force employees to work longer for smaller pension allocations.

Once you set a high standard for a pension, everyone expects that as the minimum. It never ends until it explodes

Economic and political tensions aside, nobody in my family has retired before 75, they say that their works keep them active and engaged in many ways. Thanks to that I met 4 of my great grandparents, nobody in my immediate family has died before 95, it might be genes but they loved to attribute their longevity to delaying their retirement at least 10 years.
