France up in arms over retirement! (part 2)

French people have taken to the streets: French MPs were discussing today the pension reform proposed by the government, the major sticking point for most French workers being retirement age that would go up from 60 to 62. But President Sarkozy sees the change as essential to help balance his budget, and reduced France's deficit.

Rafael NEDZYNSKI, « Force Ouvrière » Union
Markus KERBER, Professor of Political Economy at the Technische Universität of Berlin
Bill STEWART, Instructor of International Business Administration at the American University of Paris
