French unions strike against pension reform

France, Paris

Ruptly is live from Paris on Thursday, January 19, as hundreds gather on the streets to demonstrate against new pension reforms

proposed by Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne.

The changes will gradually raise the retirement age from 62 to 64 by 2030, which ministers say will balance the deficit in the system caused by longer life expectancy.

France, along with a handful of other EU countries, has the lowest pension age in Europe, spending nearly 14 percent of its economic output on them. The last reform, in 2011, raised the retirement age from 60 to 62.

The protests are expected to continue in the following days.
