Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Your link says nothing about SNCF having trouble recruiting. It is a recruitment brochure, merely indicating that they are recruiting. I have a friend who joined SNCF lately, her view was rather the opposite, it was the joining that was very difficult, there were so many candidates.

As for comparing a TGV driver to an airline pilot, I think this convinces me for good that you are not of good faith. It's far closer to a long distance bus driver, although if you multiply people travelling by likelihood of an accident, the bus driver has more responsibility and a more exacting job. Not that he gets paid as much or retires at 50...

Can this topic ever be discussed honestly or must it always be propaganda on either side?
