The bankers demands get more and more brazen but this latest one takes the biscuit. According to a leaked Troika letter, Greeks are about to be asked to work a 6 day week. This comes on top of a OECD report in 2010 which said the Greeks are the 2nd hardest workers in the world, after the South Koreans.

Area: Flexibility of labour arrangements
Measure: Increase flexibility of work schedules:
 
•     Increase the number of maximum workdays to 6 days per week for all sectors.
•     Set the minimum daily rest to 11 hours.
•     Delink the working hours of employees from the opening hours of the establishment.
•     Eliminate restrictions on minimum/maximum time between morning and afternoon shifts.
•     Allow the consecutive two week leave to be taken anytime during the year in seasonal sectors.
This is right up there with that Australia nut job, (300 lb) Rinehart (the worlds richest woman, who inherited her wealth and knows nothing about having to work for it).
Australian mining magnate Gina Rinehart has criticised her country’s economic performance and said Africans willing to work for $2 a day should be an inspiration.
Chrstine Lagarde’s recent condescending comments towards Greece demonstrate further, what the elites feel about them. Whats in store for the rest us ?
“I think more of the little kids from a school in a little village in Niger who get teaching two hours a day, sharing one chair for three of them, and who are very keen to get an education. I have them in my mind all the time because I think they need even more help than the people in Athens.”
