Welcome to the new world France. If other European people can work later in life why not France? Add in the 35 hour week and I have no sympathy for them. Why not retire early and wait for the pension if it's such a big problem. The older generation in France have had it too good at the expenses of the young.

Yes Welcome to the new world . French workers actually achieve productivity levels that are among the highest in the world. So the wealth produced by high productivity should be adequate to maintain pension levels. Their pay packets stagnate while the profits from increased productivity are siphoned off into the financial secton (So whats new??? same old world)
P.S. you have to have a stable job for 40 to 43 years to get the penson in France. Its not automatic.
