ORIGINAL FRENCH ARTICLE: Sondage exclusif CSA pour l’Humanité : 8 Français sur 10 inquiets quant à leur retraite
Translated Wednesday 11 September 2013, by
Eight in ten. That’s the proportion of French people who say they are anxious about their retirement pension. This is the lesson from an exclusive opinion poll done by the CSA polling organization for l’Humanité, to be read in the Sept. 9 edition. While some measures benefit from majority support, the government reform is far from having won people’s hearts and minds, on the eve of the big trade union mobilization.
Once again, this poll shows how skeptical French people are about this reform, which will be at the heart of the day of action organized for September 10 by the CGT, FO, FSU and Solidaires. Moreover, 42% of the French say they back or sympathize with the demonstration. Support for the demonstration is greater on the left (52%) and notably among those who identify with the Front de Gauche (75%) than on the right (26%).
In the Sept. 9 edition of Humanité, read all this about the French people and retirement reform:
* Our analysis of the poll
* The details of the measures in the government proposal
* The alternatives put forward by the French Communist Party and the Front de Gauche
* In-depth analysis of hard jobs with the personal stories of workers at Monoprix and at Saint-Gobin.
