The last vacation you ever had in your life ( photo: Lefkada 2009 )
Greeks experience a new shock, as the lenders – Troika (EE/ECB/IMF) demands a radical decrease in pensions.
Pension : only just 48% of the salary after 40 years of work!
While Labor Minister Andreas Loverdos proposes the pension to be 60% of the salary, the Troika puts the knife deep in the pockets of the insured.
A employee gets today € 1.200 salary.
His pension after 35 years of work is € 837
With Loverdos Proposal: € 802
With TROIKA-IMF/EU proposal € 380 and this after 40 years of work!!!
These radical pension cuts are not combined with any changes in the insurance/pensions system. Charges lcould be separation of doctor/pharmaceutical insurance from pensions, or volunteery pension contributions.
Billions of Euros from the insurance/pension institutions have been lost after the money was used to invest in questionable bonds. No state official has been hold accountable so far or have been punished!
At the same time salaries for firstly employed have been cut from € 745 down € 550
In short we, common Greeks, are called to pay for the debts created by those who put their hands deep in the millions & billions of public money. And did this for decades.
Will Greeks accept this injustice?
