France -Partial reversal of pension age hike -June 6, 2012

The government announced on 6 June that it will reverse the increase of the pension age from 60 to 62 for a limited group of workers. An estimated 110,000 workers who started their labour markets careers at age 18 and have made social security contributions for at least 41 years, will be allowed to retire at 60. The measure is expected to cost around 1.1 billion euros. According to the trade unions the measure is a step in the right direction but they expressed disappointment at the small number of people benefiting from the reversal.
