Greek public sector union fears social explosion

ATHENS, March 3 (BestGrowthStock) – Greece’s biggest public sector
union ADEDY reacted angrily to new austerity measures on
Wednesday, warning they could trigger social unrest.

“We will be on the streets with all our might. I am afraid
there will be a social explosion,” ADEDY’s General Secretary
Ilias Iliopoulos told Reuters. “People will start going hungry
soon.”

Greece’s cabinet on Wednesday decided to take extra
austerity measures totaling 4.8 billion euros ($6.49 billion) to
ensure it meets key fiscal targets this year, a government
source said.
