The political scientist called the pension maneuver stress test for the government
“What do people who are physically healthy, are strong, but they have no career prospects, because the posts move people 1970 year of birth and younger?”, — the President of holding “Minchenko consulting” Evgenie Minchenko. In his view, to displace the people of fifty plus from the management field by attracting young can be dangerous.
Power went out now to raise the retirement age, because time, according to the President of holding “Minchenko consulting” Evgenie Minchenko.
“Before the elections to the state Duma is still far. So, the big social risks for power there. The absence in the near future large Federal campaigns, the high ratings of the President and relatively high ratings of the Prime Minister and the party in power allow this to go,” says the analyst.
In his opinion, the government of Dmitry Medvedev was conceived as a government of unpopular reforms.
“Next is the question of how it will pass the stress test. Or the government, implementing this program will be forced to leave, or be able to explain to the population that this is for his own good,” says Minchenko.
In any case, pension reform in the country has matured, and she no doubt needed. “Russia in the next ten years — a country with a rapidly aging population. Accordingly, it is necessary to do something, because the burden on each worker will only increase”, — says the analyst. However, it is crucial, in his opinion, the reform was accompanied by a public discussion of all the pros and cons.
The analyst is also concerned with the problem of age discrimination, which the authorities will need to be addressed. “We now talk a lot about what the young should give way to promote them to leadership positions. But in fact the most massive electoral significant category be, on the one hand, pensioners, on the other people age fifty plus,” — said the President of holding “Minchenko consulting”.
That power is there for these people who have to deal with age discrimination? Try to find a job when your age is fifty plus.

The logic of displacement of people fifty plus from managerial fields by attracting young is not correct, said the source. As an example, he cites the defeat of Saakashvili in Georgia: “the Rate on thirty-year managerial geniuses have led to the fact that he lost the older generation”.
On the eve of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the retirement age increase will allow to index pensions by almost 1,000 rubles per year, whereas in recent years, pensions grew only 400-500 rubles.
VZGLYAD talked in detail what changes are waiting for pensioners. On Thursday, Medvedev said that the Cabinet proposes to raise the age of retirement in Russia to 65 years for men and 63 for women. The reform raising the retirement age will be phased and will start in 2019.
