Emmanuel Macron increases the pressure on pensions

Pension reform, second attempt. After failing to postpone the legal age of departure due to a health crisis, Emmanuel Macron puts his campaign promise back on the carpet. During a meeting at the Élysée on Thursday morning, with the presidents of the groups of the presidential majority in the National Assembly and the members of the finance committee of the majority, the President of the Republic did not hide his will to want to initiate the reform very quickly.

“ Will we be able to do better in a few months? The answer is no  ”, explained the Head of State. Unpopular and explosive today, the reform will be equally so tomorrow.
