Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, this is where we differ. I don't think wages of train drivers are ungenerous at all (nor in fact wages of most SNCF employees, but only drivers get to retire at 50) -especially on a comparative basis.
I would like everyone to be wealthy of course. But if you compare SNCF with similarly qualified jobs with similar difficulties (nurses for example? although they are more qualified than most SNCF positions) they seem to have far, far more generous conditions.
