Greece scraps extra holiday bonus for using computers

Greece is scrapping a perk public sector workers have enjoyed since 1989: six extra days paid holiday a year in return for using a computer.

The Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that it “belongs to another era.”

The country’s austerity drive means what he describes as such “anachronistic privileges” are now being ditched in the same way as another former bonus – a bonus for showing up to work.
