Swiss vote for higher retirement age for women

According to projections, the Swiss narrowly agreed to an increase in the retirement age for women from 64 to 65. This has been brought into line with the age of men, who also retire at 65.

According to the projections, 51 percent of voters voted for the initiative in the referendum on Sunday. In order to further stabilize the pension fund, VAT is to be increased from 7.7 to 8.1 percent. According to the extrapolation, 56 percent voted for this step.

The government had campaigned for a higher retirement age. The financial stability of the pension insurance is endangered because baby boomers are reaching retirement age and life expectancy is increasing. Left and unions rejected the increase. First, it must be ensured that women earn as much as men, it said.

An initiative for better animal welfare has clearly failed. The initiators wanted to include animal welfare in the constitution and called for an end to factory farming, instead smaller stables should be prescribed. According to extrapolation, 63 percent of voters rejected the initiative. A majority thus followed the government's argument that the handling of livestock in Switzerland is already subject to high standards.
