In Greece, the conservative-led Parliament has passed a bill that allows employees to work more hours in a day in exchange for time off. The bill was condemned by opposition lawmakers and labor unions, which organized strikes and demonstrations in response. This is a protester speaking from Athens Wednesday.
Veta Panoutsakou: “Workers are determined not to allow our rights to be destroyed, not to go back to previous centuries. We will protect the eight-hour workday, which was won with blood. And we will not allow anyone to profit on our backs.”
