France Senate approved retirement reform
Cody Harding at 12:00 AM ET

On October 22, 2010, the French Senate approved retirement reform legislation designed to keep the country's pension system viable. Debate over the bill was met with heated, widespread protests across the country from union workers and students. The bill increased the retirement age from 60 to 62 and raised the eligibility for full pension benefits from 65 to 67 and passed the French Senate with a vote of 177-153.
