Greek Legislators Approve Job Cuts
Plan to fire 15,000 workers is part of Greece’s effort to secure more international aid.
Greek lawmakers passed a bill including plans to fire 15,000 workers by the end of next year as the government of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras cleared the latest hurdle to receiving international aid payments.
A total of 168 lawmakers voted in favor of the law, 123 against and one cast a “present” vote, Parliament Speaker Yannis Tragakis said in remarks carried live on state-run Vouli TV after a roll-call vote.
