Travailler à l’âge de la retraite ? Comparaison de la situation dans sept capitales ouest-africaines
Until these last years, "55 years" marked the retirement age in the majority of the French-speaking African capitals of West Africa. Only people who were employed in the modern private sector or in the administration could profit from a retirement pension. The increasing presence of active seniors is a question which currently occupies the social scene in West Africa. In addition, the increase in the retirement age is one of the major claims of the trade unions Men are still comparatively numerous working in the group age of 55-59 years (more than 60 % of the). Beyond 60 years old, an important proportion of individuals still work. As they get older, senior workers confine themselves more and more in the informal sector. Pensions distributed in West Africa are relatively moderate. There are not enough to cover family expenses which represent a burden until a relatively advanced age.
