Old-age Pension at Sixty.
The French Senate has passed the Budget in its entirety. It has also incorporated in tlio Finance Bill some clauses relating to workmen's pensions, tlio most notable feature of which is that the age limit is lowered to 60 years. Thus France, is considerably ahead of our own "radical" government. Why is the British worker, who produces all the wealth, willing to starve and wait for a miserable dole at 70, instead of demanding an adequate pension as soon as he is no longer f.fdo to compete in the labor market? — "Justice."
