Tell that to the EU: Leaked: Troika requires 6-day working week in Greece (RT.com, 04 September, 2012)
A leaked email sent to the Greek Ministries of Finance and Labor from the Troika says Greek private sector workers should work six days a week and longer hours.

The letter, which was published on August 31, shows that the Troika expects the Labor Ministry to implement a number of other new measures. They include reducing the notice period before firing a worker, and cutting certain severance packages by 50 per cent by giving employers the right to reduce workers' time in service. Restrictions on overtime are also expected to come into effect.

"It also wants a dismantling of the labor inspectorate which is the public service that is responsible for implementing labor law. So it's not only about making the labor market more flexible," Panagiotis Sotiris from the University of the Aegean told RT.



If you are not convinced, try it on someone who has not been entirely debauched by economics. — Piero Sraffa
