France: Demonstrations to demand higher wages and not raising the retirement age

The French government faces its first major test today, Thursday, as France witnesses strikes and demonstrations to demand higher wages and protests against raising the retirement age, a key demand of President Emmanuel Macron, who wants Paris to pass a bill on it before the onset of winter.


French Labor Minister Olivier Dusupt has warned that the French president, who intends to preserve his ability to pass his economic policies, does not rule out dissolving the National Assembly in the event of a vote of no confidence in the government.


 “If all opponents ally themselves to adopt a no-confidence vote and to topple the government, Macron will go to the French, and the French will decide and decide what new majority they want,” confirmed Dussupt, who is responsible for starting new consultations on retirement starting next week.

It is expected that at least 200 gatherings, throughout France, will take place on the first day of this professional mobilization since the beginning of the school year, according to the Federal Secretary of the General Labor Confederation Céline Verzeletti.
