Destroying Greece

Their country is on the verge of bankruptcy, so what do the unions do? Why go on strike. it's always a good idea to make thinks worse for your fellow citizens. The government should use this opportunity to fire these employees and get better ones. They won't, the government is socialist.

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Greek police fired tear gas to disperse protesters throwing rocks and firebombs outside Parliament as more than 20,000 people marched through central Athens during a nationwide strike against the government's harsh new austerity measures.
The strike brought the country to a virtual standstill Thursday, grounding all flights and bringing public transport to a halt. State hospitals were left with emergency staff only and all news broadcasts were suspended as workers walked off the job for 24 hours to protest spending cuts and tax hikes designed to tackle the country's debt crisis.
Riot police fired volleys of tear gas to disperse protesters throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails in sporadic clashes throughout the demonstration, including outside Parliament. Strikers and protesters banged drums and chanted slogans such as "no sacrifice for plutocracy," and "real jobs, higher pay." People draped banners from apartment buildings reading: "No more sacrifices, war against war."

yep-the 'gimme' state takes more and more from others while they quebec, goes deeper and deeper into debt. Strange?

I think CS, it will be nice to investigate where the 'billions of dollars a year sent to Quebec is used on .
How can a province like quebec be so deep in debt and still live like millionaires. Fancy daycares subsidees on electricity.
Not even Alberta gets subsidees or rarely that is, or have a fancy daycare.
