Why Greece Is In Such Trouble - Shocking Facts About Governmental Ripoffs!

Why is Greece in Trouble Shocking facts that help to explain why Greece is in such trouble.

This is a (poor) translation of an item in the French language press:

1. The public sector pays its employees on average three times more than the private sector. And there nearly three quarters of a million civil servants for a labor force of less than five million.

2. Tax evasion is so pervasive that 25% of people among the wealthy do not pay taxes. And the government does not intervene, even if they are known.

3. There are four times as many teachers per student in Greece (than) in Finland, the country that gets top marks. Moreover, Greece arrives back of the pack in the vast majority of educational tests. All this while the Greek teachers are among the highest paid in the world.

4. The official retirement age is 62 years. However, that age (goes) down to 55 years for men and 50 years for women whose jobs are considered "difficult". Nothing wrong so far, except that more than 600 occupations are considered "difficult". Among them are found hairdressers, radio announcers, television presenters, wind instrument musicians, servers, etc.

5. There are 40 000 girls who receive a life pension of 1000 euros per month simply because they are unmarried daughters of deceased civil servants.

6. Pacemakers in Greek hospitals were acquired at a price 400 times higher than that paid by British hospitals.

7. In the last decade, Greece has created over 300 new public companies.

8. Last year, the Institute for the Protection of Lake Copais still had thirty employees. However, this lake has dried up in 1930.

9. There are pensions paid to many people sometimes died there over 50 years.
In fact the dead are not always recorded and pensions continue to be perceived by survivors. As a result, Greece has the highest proportion of people declaring fictitious age of 110 years old.

10. The French average receive their pension 51% of their final salary, the Germans, 40%, North Americans 41%, and the Japanese 34%. Meanwhile, the Greek pensioners receive on average 96% of their previous salary.
