Greece shaken by health and taxi strikes


Health workers in Greece have taken to the streets over spending cuts and changes to the service that they say will harm the quality of the system.

It is likely that state hospitals will be merged and closed and salaries reduced as part of the government’s stringent cost-cutting exercise.

Taxi drivers in Greece have also staged a one-day stoppage – a month after the last one.

They are against plans to open the industry up to competition by making it easier to buy a license. The government hopes this will create more jobs and bring an end to illegal licence procurement.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
