The situation for Greek employees is getting worse by the month. Recent data released by theGreek Labor Ministry state that 126,956 private-sector employees are only receiving gross salaries of 100 euros per month. A total of 343,760 employees are either classified as part-time or casual workers and receive a gross salary ranging from 100 to 400 euros.
Each month shows figures more disastrous than the month before with September’s figures revealing the complete deregulation of the job market that shows that part-time jobs have peaked over the 50 percent threshhold, surpassing full-time employment. New recruitments from January to September showed that 51.5 percent of people hired were employed for part-time jobs, compared to 48.5 percent working on full-time contracts.
