15000 civil servants to lose job as Greece passes a new bill

Greece unemploymentIn a bid to ensure more bailout money from international creditors, the Greek parliament has passed a bill which will see 15000 state employees lose their jobs by the end of next year.

The bill, passed by 168 votes to 123, is a condition for Greece to receive its next tranche of loans worth USD 11.4bn.

Once again, the austerity measure sparked a massive demonstration outside of the Greek parliament called by Adedy, the civil service trade confederation and the private sector GSEE union.

Those getting fired are mostly older workers who are already struggling to support their families and make ends meet.

Some critics say the new law will only add to the record high unemployment rate of 27% of Greece.
