Does the Greek state owe you money? You’d better forget about the payment – I hope for the time being… Then Greece apparently faces shortage of funds, the possibility of the 6th bailout tranche ( eight billion euro) is in the air, and national media reported recently that Greece has money until October 15th 2011. This morning I heard the IKA, biggest insurance & pension fund, governor assuring that there will be no problem with paying the pensions. Unfortunately the workers’ contributions have vanished in the air of dark corridors and false investments, and the pensions are now financed through taxes! No wonder the salaries for newly hired civil servants will start with just 750 euro gross per month.
