Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, most of the French want to retire as soon as possible. Most jobs don't include any real "career". Most people don't get much deep satisfaction from their jobs once they reach that age, and don't care much about the career concept.

As for the possibility of choosing retirement age, it is also possible in a state system ; the only problem is being able to negotiate this flexibility with a government and employers who care only about making people work as long as possible, for as little as possible.

Et bienvenue sur la Tribune Européenne !
