    30% cuts in Public Sector Bonuses? Why are public sector employees getting bonuses when the country is defacto bankrupt?

    The U.S. should take a lesson from this:

    The Adedy union, Greece's largest public sector union, has already called for a 24-hour strike on March 16 to protest against the measures.

    The union, which has around 300,000 members, also announced a series of raillies to be held throughout March.

    The main tax service union, which has a membership of about 15,000, said it would hold a 48-hour strike from March 8.

    The union has already held three strikes in the past month.
