Termination of activity. They are thousands to have reviewed the terms of their retirement because of him. From now on, everything could change! Because Emmanuel Macron is not the only one to consider major upheavals in terms of pensions. Moreover, he does not have control over all the levers likely to impact the lives of French men and women… As a reminder, the President of the Republic has a project to postpone the legal retirement age. retirement, now set at 62.
