Raising pensions age not negotiable – French govt

French Labor Minister Oliver Dussopt insisted on Wednesday that the government’s decision to increase the retirement age from 62 to 64 by 2030 is “non-negotiable,” despite countrywide protests and union calls for rolling strikes.

About 1.27 million people went onto the streets yesterday according to the Interior Ministry, in the second nationwide demonstration this month. “If we do not go to 64, the pension system will not break even. What is not negotiable is the issue of returning to break-even … Mobilisation was large, this should lead us to continue to explain it,” Dussopt said in an interview with France 2 channel.
