"

"The life expectancy of the Spanish has grown in recent decades, which means that in the future the number of pensioners is higher and also receive their pension for longer.

To this we must add the entry into the world somewhat later work through better training.

In fact, in 2049 50 percent of the population will age and will not work twice over 64 years now. "

"I could even think of other solutions to reduce public pensions (which is what made covertly by not raising the PP to the CPI), and advocating for mixed systems, but that's not the choice of the socialist government, it probably does for other but do not say.

The Socialist Party believes in public pensions and long-term viability with the appropriate reforms, "he concluded.
