Portugal -Youngsters protest against precarious work -April 01, 2015

Protest against precarious working conditions and deterioration of workers’ rights as the labour market has led to mass layoffs and pay cuts.

Youngsters organised a protest against precarious working conditions and deterioration of workers’ rights. Although the country has returned to growth, the youth unemployment rate is still extremely high, standing at around 33.6% in January 2015 (figures by Eurostat). The bailout program that forced the country to change the social welfare system and reform the labour market has led to mass layoffs and pay cuts.
