Democratic Liberal Botis: Women’s retirement age should be lowered

0
The Democratic Liberal (PD-L) vice chairman of the labour commission in the Deputies’ Chamber Ioan Nelu Botis said on Friday he does not agree with the same retirement age for women and men, as the Emil Boc Government proposes, but instead he wants the women’s retirement age to be lowered to 62 years.

‘A woman goes to work and comes back home to a second work, in many families. Such is the culture in Romania, unfortunately. Besides the regular job, women also have one at home, which is rather strenuous. We are holding a very serious discussion on this topic in Parliament. I personally want the women’s retirement age to be lowered,’ Botis said.

He explained that the working conditions for women in Romania are pretty tough, as work physically wears them down. ‘If we had the same working conditions as in Germany or Britain, I wouldn’t insist too much, since there is very much mechanization there’, he stressed.
While the Democratic Liberal deputy wants women to retire at 62, former Social Democratic state secretary at the Education Ministry Adriana Pana proposed on Friday that women should retire even earlier, at 60, arguing that it will be some time till Romanian women afford to pay a nanny or a housekeeper that should help them at home.
