Greece -Government re-hires thousands -May 07, 2015

Some 4,000 school guards, cleaning ladies and civil servants have been re-hired.

In a change of policy the government has re-hired thousands of workers. The public sector workers were fired as a part of the austerity programmes. The new government is now making use of all of the limited flexibility in the agreements to re-hire some 4,000 school guards, cleaning ladies and civil servants. The move is expected to put the government at odds with money lenders, who have refused to pay the next tranche of loans until new reforms have been agreed upon.
