A man spray paints a slo­gan on a win­dow at the Greek Tourism Con­fed­er­a­tion (SETE) in cen­tral Athens yes­ter­day dur­ing a protest by work­ers in the tourism and food ser­vice sec­tors. Unions rep­re­sent­ing em­ploy­ees in the two sec­tors called a 24hour strike yes­ter­day, ac­com­pa­nied by a peace­ful march through down­town Athens, to protest lax en­force­ment of la­bor laws. De­spite tourism be­ing a ma­jor money earner for Greece, unions say tourism and cater­ing work­ers are among the low­est paid in the coun­try and that job pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions are fre­quently ig­nored.
