The French Government suspends a regulation on increasing the retirement age in response to many protests, a French media company France Info reports on January 11.
The regulation proposed by the Government is aimed at raising the retirement age from 62 to 64 years. The document is planned to be re-examined in February.
French President Emmanuel Macron promised in his New Year’s address to bring a retirement reform to a conclusion. According to him, this reform is well-intentioned: increase in pensions, equal rights for workers.
It is to be note that the reform has been ill-received for the most part, while provoking mass protests.
