France is once again showing the world how to get results when their government does something incorrect.
In January, it was announced that the French Government brought in a new bill that would raise the age of retirement from 62 to 64.
This was something the Borne government has brought in, without a vote.
Those present at the announcement called for a resignation while others sang the French National Anthem.
Personally, if I was on the receiving end of that, I’d be preparing an apology and backtracking to avoid the guillotine.
But, it’s officially 58 days since the protests and strikes began, and thankfully they’re just heightening…
Government property has been damaged, controlled fires, graffiti, and much more.
While France has a much lower retirement age than more European countries – Spain is 65, the UK is 66 (soon to be 67), Germany and Italy is 67 – their fight to keep the age at 62 is fantastic.
