Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ok, then let me rephrase that: I do not see "the left" in general defending degrowth. Unions here protect teachers that make 3000-5000 Euros (The salary of a Uni teacher can go up to 5000, maybe less now with 10% cuts).

I never saw a union here suggesting: "OK, if we cannot get more salary mass, then cut individual salaries, but employ the unemployed".

The degrowth, pain sharing approach simply does not exist.

It is moral very similar to what the right proposes. It is just a question of which group gets more money.

I have to dash now, but later I would also like to comment on the "media thing".
