TORSDAG GIK 70.000 GRÆSKE ÆLDRE PÅ GADEN


De var på gaden den 4. april, da en græsk pensioneret farmaceut begik selvmord foran parlamentet. Og nu igen. Grækenland har 21% arbejdsløshed foruden det løse, hver anden under 25 år er ledig, og EU er netop blevet kritiseret af IMF for håndteringen af den græske krise. Nu er det besluttet at nedskære den græske folkepension og forhøje pensionsalderen.

Grækenlands økonomistørrelse er cirka som den danske.

It will raise the retirement age from 65 to 67 and cut pensions on average between 5% and 15%.
Some salaries in the public sector will be reduced by about a third, and several bonuses will be scrapped. Some judges must take a 30% pay cut, for example.

The crisis has cost tens of thousands of jobs, sending unemployment to a record high of 21 percent while one in two Greeks aged under 25 is jobless — amid a shrinking economy that is not expected to revive for at least two years.

Suicides are on the rise, although accurate figures are hard to access as not all are reported.

Police have recorded more than 1,700 such suicides and attempts since 2009, while the health ministry said suicides jumped 40 percent in the first five months of 2011 over the same period in 2010, with analysts linking the surge to the pressures of economic hardship.
