    France pensions system is actually a whole bunch of pensions system. There are 42 pensions systems, each for another occupation. With the reform, a unified system comes into existence and that means that special treatments for some occupations like train drivers will be history. This doesn´t apply for people born prior to 1975.
    The retirement age of 65 will not be changed. And people can still retire with 62 - 64 but there will be abatements.
    The pensions reform was a campaign promise of Macron. The protests may have helped to soften the reform, however, several trade unions announced to continue the protests unless the government drops the reform completely.

    Governments have FINITE resources. France already taxes everyone's balls off.

    All over the world, people who are already sucking at the government's teats demand not to have the flow of milk slowed or delayed.

    They get no sympathy from those who actually work for a living and take responsibility for their own wellbeing.

    It is the best answer which can be given about this issue. The West Europeans should already wake up and understand that things have already changed since the mid-20th century and most countries can't afford the model of 'social state' any more.

    The French do not agree, we are the most taxed country in the world and Macron hits the French more and more ... the French revolution he quickly forgot

    We can, no problem. All we need is fair taxation and stop inviting the world to our welfare programs.

    The rich need the money more than the rest of the population, or at least that is the impression we get from governments.

    We can't afford a Libertardian state either.
    A ton of manufacturing jobs left, and a ton of third world beggars encroached into West Europe, USA, Canada, and Australia to their demise.

    The pure irony, is that the typical Western European is completely oblivious to their decay, and demise.

    Western Europeans seem to not grasp a heck of a lot, a bunch of savages, and drones.
