Macron doesn't give up, he wants the French to work two years more



The French government is not giving in to union demands and has included in the bill a controversial clause raising the retirement age from 62 to 64, with signs that multi-week street protests against pension reform are looming.

The government wants to replace 42 pension schemes with a single universal credit system and increase the retirement age from 62 to 64, which is why French unions have organized mass protests lasting several weeks.



Negotiations with the unions continue

The government will send the bill to the pension department, which will give its opinion. Under the bill, the full retirement age rises to 64 for people born in 1965 and earlier.

According to the proposal, one can still retire at 62, but workers who choose to retire at the time will not receive the maximum amount of pension. If Macron manages to push through the law, he will become the first post-war French leader to shatter the pension system.

Negotiations between the union and Prime Minister Edouard Philippe will continue today. Radical unions are asking the government to reject the proposal, while France's largest union, the reformist CFDT, is open to a single pension scheme, but said increasing the age limit is “crossing the red line.”

Hundreds of thousands protested in cities across France, but turnout was lower than at previous protests.
