Macron called for a gradual increase in the retirement age in France

The president France Emmanuel Macron called for a gradual increase in the retirement age to 65. About it writes RIA Novosti.

“We have to work harder. And in this regard, there are two levers: full employment and pension reform,” the president explained his point of view.

According to Macron, France needs to carry out a pension reform and gradually raise the retirement age to 65 years (now the retirement age in the country is 62 years).

Previously Macron after the statement on the acceptance of Ukrainian refugees, made on March 15, readers of the French newspaper Le Figaro were strongly criticized.

“Is Macron preparing for the arrival of refugees or is it the French? Unless he’s going to host them at the Elysee Palace?” asked the woman under the name Anne-Louise.

However, the number pensioners registered with the Pension Fund for 2021 decreased by almost a million. By the beginning of 2022, there were just over 42 million older people in the country. However, independent demographer Aleksey Raksha said that the number of pensioners should have grown by almost 700,000.
