` ` Greek Public Workers protest against thousands of job cuts demanded by bail -out conditions imposed by lenders ‘

#AceFinanceNews Greek public sector workers shut schools and left hospitals at emergency staffing levels Wednesday, Reuters reported.

They are protesting against thousands of new job cuts demanded by Greece’s foreign lenders. Doctors, teachers and school guards joined the 24-hour strike and planned marches to parliament.

Labour unions fear the centre-right Greek government will impose even more wage and pension cuts to meet the targets of its 240 billion euro bailout deal with the EU and IMF.
