Re: Crisis in Greece, the Euro Area and the European Union

But you wouldn't expect unions to demonstrate against a government for running up debt, as long as that government doesn't do anything obvious against workers.

I know this might sound illogical to you, but that's not what a union is there to do.

The riots in Greece also haven't been against the government's bad financial politices, but against the cuts in social privileges and wages.



But, Mme Bergerac what is life like in Spain?
Do middle class people who *have* a job feel the impact of the econimic crisis in their personal lives? I'd be really interested to hear how this affects normal daily life in Spain, or whether it's relatively unobtrusive, as it has been (so far) in the UK....
