After 100 Years Greece To Lay Off Some Government Employees

It takes a 5 year economic depression, debt default, and 27% unemployment before government employees feel the pain. Greece starts firing civil servants for first time in a century

The first two civil servants were let go on Wednesday under a new law that speeds up the process one, a policeman, for stealing debit cards, and the other for 110 days of unexcused absence.

The parasite class is much bigger in Belgium and France.

According to ECB statistics from 2011, Greece employed 29 percent of its labor force in the public sector smaller than Belgium's 38 percent and France's 31 percent during the same period.

So a criminal cop can survive in his job for years through a financial crisis that has many Greek school children going hungry. Government as parasite.

Greece has its problems, but that is an inaccurate statement. It's the first mass layoff in a century, and they've made it easier to fire individual workers. That doesn't mean they haven't fired any individual workers in a century.

That's truly sad. Imagine losing your job after working for the Greek government for 100 years :-)
