Kavala Hospital Employees Earn 15 Euros Biweekly

Employees in the Hospital of Kavala are in desperation due to extend cuts to their salaries. Thus, they protested standing in front of the entrance door of the hospital yesterday, opposing against the new government measures that have a negative impact on their income and their subsistence.
The Chairman of the Workers’ Association, Katerina Petraki, underlined that it is likely that the protest will continue through strike, since the workers on this specific sector take part in the already called strike of the Civil Servants Supreme Administrative Council (ADEDY) and the Panhellenic Federation of Public Hospital Workers (POEDIN).
According to the statements of Katerina Petraki, the society can realize the problems arising from the hospital workers’ sector and especially the imposed salary cuts of 40%. There are many workers that are receiving 7-15 euros biweekly.
” There is no excuse for the new governmental measures. What are the anticipations from an employee that earns 15 euros every fortnight? Except for the everyday expenditures, workers have their own functional needs, such as the transport to their job. Is it possible to overcome these difficulties and survive under the current circumstances?”, Chairman Petraki has stated.
