UNION RESEARCH FAIL

Our private sector Union, GSEE, recently released the findings of its survey of the Greek labour force. I will comment on this very soon but I think you'll find it speaks for itself.

My favourites so far:

  • ca. 173,000 employees in Greece claim to have a second job in which they are paid under the table. 
  • ca. 60,000 public sector workers have a second job - which they are not actually allowed to have.
  • Employees generally think their personal finances have not yet deteriorated as much as those of the country as a whole. 
  • Only about 50% of employees are willing to strike over the austerity measures. 
Strike anyone?

Please remember that I am not notified of any comments and will not respond via comments.

Try to keep your criticism constructive and if you don't like something, do tell me how to fix it. If I use any of your suggestions, you will be duly credited.

Although I'm happy to entertain criticism of myself in the comments section, I will not tolerate hate speech. You will be given a written warning and after that I will delete further offending comments.

I will also delete any comments that are clearly randomly generated by third parties for their own promotion.

Occasionally, your comments may land in the spam box, which may cause them to appear with a slight delay as I have to approve them myself.

Thanks in advance for your kind words... and your trolling, if you are so inclined.
