Couri­ers, de­liv­ery staff air griev­ances out­side Par­lia­ment

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Couri­ers and food de­liv­ery work­ers drove their mo­tor­cy­cles and scoot­ers past Par­lia­ment in down­town Athens on Satur­day, call­ing on the gov­ern­ment to es­tab­lish a min­i­mum wage for them. Seven years of cri­sis have hit blue-col­lar work­ers in Greece par­tic­u­larly hard with many work­ing for a pit­tance and usu­ally with no in­sur­ance as they com­pete with the grow­ing ranks of un­em­ployed peo­ple try­ing to make ends meet. It is es­ti­mated that around 30,000 peo­ple work as couri­ers and in food de­liv­ery in At­tica alone.
