i heard in places like Italy and Greece people retire around 55 even if they don't have the money to do so. from what i've heard the PIIGS portugal italy ireland greece spain are all just really lazy as a whole and spend even if they don't have the money
fuck off you ignorant, we work 40 hours a week, earn 600 euros per month and retire at 65
edit: now that I think of it, that was before the crisis. nowadays we work 45 hours a week to earn 500 euros
