Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Are we talking about social security here?

That certainly is ridiculous but I can't follow the article. The article makes claims about unions getting these sweet deals for workers, so are we talking about union pensions? And what union negotiates with the gov't over hairdressers. There doesn't seem to be clarity in that article, and it's surprising since the writer is Greek, and he doesn't seem to be aware that the Greek retirement age for gov't workers has been raised, as has the age for social security, and gov't pensions have been slashed. I know that was written over a month ago, but the changes came prior to that.
