In the News (from France24): “Greece’s Parliament approved an emergency bill Sunday to pave the way for thousands of public sector layoffs and free up 8.8 billion euros ($11.5 billion) in international rescue loans.
“The bill, which passed in a 168-123 vote, will allow for the first civil service layoffs in more than a century. About 2,000 civil servants will be laid off by the end of May, with another 2,000 following by the end of the year and a further 11,500 by end-2014, for a total of 15,500.”
My Comment: Isn’t it easier in the countries like this to reform the entire state structure by equalizing the lowest-income segment of the population, introducing compulsory education for the unemployed (on TV channels), encouraging the creation of mutual aid funds, and so on? The main task that the government faces is to occupy the idle population and turn it into the vanguard of the future society by means of education.
