No one like to listen that their pension originally promised XXX amount will be XX amount and you have to work longer before you can retire.

I never understand the government.

It’s like either listen to the demands of the people who make the world move, or don’t listen to them and have mass disruptions in industries that will affect many people.

The government always chooses the latter, more difficult, option.

It's almost like raising the retirement age might be necessary in what I also assume is an aging country like pretty much every Western country.

Official reports actually show that the retirement system in France is fine.

They did the measure because they lowered industry taxes, it's written in the reform.

62 is way too early to retire. Are they forced to retire or can they work a few more years? If they can, they should get a higher monthly pension amount when they do retire.

Certainly makes sense! I dont think the French realise how good they have it.
