Heil against raising the retirement age over 67 years
Berlin Minister of Labour Hubertus Heil Opposes raising the retirement age beyond 67 after 2031. “Increasing the retirement age to 69, 70 or 75 is wrong and unfair, because that would mean a real pension cut for many people who simply cannot work that long,” Heil told the Rheinische Post on Thursday.
“That would be at the expense of the younger generation, who retire after the baby boomers. I don’t want that, and the traffic light in the coalition agreement ruled that out Germany is already very high in an international comparison at 67 years from 2031. Chancellor Olaf Scholz recently spoke out in favor of more people retiring at the age of 67.
