(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL tract, Retirement reform in point - chauvinist reform ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 20 Jan 2020 08:45:45 +0200

This is the robbery of the century: the State intends to monopolize the pension funds which correspond to our gross salary contributed and pooled. With this reform, the State uses a most cynical machismo: shamelessly trampling on the few rights that keep women standing (by removing the compensation for periods of precariousness, part-time, maternity leave, the years of contributions that each gives child born, survivor's pensions for many women). ---- We women 51 % of the population will all be affected. Currently retired, we receive 40 % less than men. With the points reform we will receive 60 % less than them. When a man receives 1,280 € in retirement, his colleague will only receive 800 €. In our patriarchal society such a reform can only lead millions of women to pensions of misery and to increased submission to their companion. With less than € 1,000, how can you do it alone ? How to leave the violent spouse ? Point retirement is an attack on our freedoms and our future.

First affected
The abolition of compensation will force those who have two children to work for four more years. Four more years is killing us at work and robbing us of what we have contributed ! Those of us, still too numerous, who have suffered sexual violence, especially in our youth, can lose up to 20 years of life expectancy. This is what the association demonstrates, Traumatic Memory which establishes that sexual violence is ultimately responsible for diabetes, cancer, depression, suicide, cardiovascular disease. With a pivotal starting age that continues to decline, which can go beyond 67 years, this means that for these women who have been victims, there could be no retirement at all ! We refuse the retirement of the dead !

For women in the employed and workers sectors, life expectancy is also lower, and those, to fill periods of precariousness and unemployment, will have to work beyond 70 years to hope to have a retirement at full rate. With this reform, nearly 100,000 divorced women will lose access to the survivor's pension: for each of them and their entourage, the darkest misery. Women are the first to reach the minimum wage. 80 % of the working poor are women. The announcement of a retirement at € 1,000 for a full-time minimum wage will therefore be inaccessible to us. Not to mention that earning € 1,000 is already being below the poverty line. No to retirement dependent on the spouse !

We spend most of our waking lives at work for poor wages and / or at home to run the house. Without our free work the world could not turn, capitalism would collapse. The reform provides that the amount of retirement is no longer calculated in relation to the salary for the best 25 years (case of the general scheme today), but over the entire career. Calculating entitlements from the best 25 years made it possible not to take into account the low wages of part-time years.

Women must organize
Libertarian feminists, we fight against all oppressions. Our libertarian feminism is at the crossroads of struggles against all exploitations and all oppressions. He is anti-capitalist, environmentalist and anti-racist. Our democratic aspirations are anti-state. We do not think that strengthening the state is a solution, but rather that it is part of the problem, in particular because it makes work precarious, participates in the destruction of public services, our pensions, tramples on our social conquests. (closure of maternity, family schedules, and IVG centers ...). Women are the first victims of these deadly policies. The time for women has come, we have the shoulders to change the world and to liberate ourselves !

Women, let's rebel against this society of injustices, let's rise up against physical and economic violence, which are two sides of the same coin ! ORGANIZE AND PARTICIPATE IN THE STRIKE !
