Thousands of people hit the streets of Paris on Thursday, after French trade unions called for a strike against President Emmanuel Macron's planned pension reforms. Police used tear gas as tensions soared.
The protest action comes days after the government and unions resumed talks on pension reforms.
The proposed reforms would see an overhaul to the current pension system and entail the... Еще creation of a universal pension system instead of the current 42 different schemes. While the retirement age will remain at 62 years, workers will have to work until the age of 64 to receive their full pensions.
