Pension reform?

There are those who are against it and who go on strike and demonstrate in the streets.

And there are those who are for... like Bernard de La Villardière.

Invited this Sunday in "It's excellent" on Sud Radio, the journalist and host of "Exclusive investigation" on M6 did not hesitate to openly give his point of view.

"When I come back here to France, it's true that I'm a little... When I see that we are demonstrating against the pension reform and that people are whining because they are going to work two more years, that ... I think it despairs me a little

, ”he swung before clarifying the substance of his thought:

“Because there are so many things to do in the world today!

Far from having finished, Bernard de La Villardière then took as an example the garbage collectors who have been on strike since March 7.

“When I hear people say:

'The garbage collectors, it's terrible because they are going to retire at 59'


But no one has to be a garbage collector all their life!

This is where the company is badly made.

We should say to a garbage collector beyond forty years, if he has done his job for ten to fifteen years, we must offer him something else, ”

he said.

“We are now at a generation, at a time when we are going to change, this is what I often say to young people under thirty: “You know, you are

going to change jobs two or three times in your life. ”


With continuing education, with social networks but also search engines, education is within everyone's reach

,” he added.

On March 25, Bernard de La Villardière will celebrate his sixty-fiveth birthday.

However, the journalist, who is suffering from cancer, is not decided to retire.

He has just launched on the Réel social networks,

“a general media, human-oriented, which highlights innovation, solidarity and commitment, in France and around the world”


At the same time, he continues to travel the world for "Exclusive Investigation" and is preparing a film on the excesses of assisted death in Belgium and Switzerland.

“I'm happy to work, to do what I love.

There is nothing like working.

Work is man's way of detaching himself from his condition…
