ZEROHEDGE: Greece Has Solved Its Unemployment Problem: Slavery

Greece seems to be a test bed for what the financial interests in Europe want to do on a larger scale. After being derided for years as one of the PIIGS countries (can you think of a more derogatory acronym?) and being pumped and dumped through billions of international denominated loans in Euros, Greece now reaches this new low of "voluntary" servitude?  Maybe they will get little gold stars on their resumes like kindergarten children get on their finger paintings from the teacher?

Greece has a rich history of democracy and advanced thought, its origins most likely are galactic in origin (source of the legends of gods and titans), and the very name for Europe itself comes from the Greeks! So sad to see such a bright, creative, loving people reduced to this by the financial cabal that controls North America and Europe. 

What has the Euro done for Greece? Well... pretty much destroyed it.   But the thing about having everything taken away from you, what you get back is freedom.  You realize, your enslavement was brought about by attachment to "things" bits of brightly colored paper and "possessions", and when they greedily and very short sightedly take even that away (the systems were designed to fail that way)... they have set your soul free from their chains and you will no longer give them your power and energy - which is what they really want.  -AK

Greece Has Solved Its Unemployment Problem: Slavery

Tyler Durden's picture

On the heels of today's dreadful, and very un-hockey-stick-like recovery, data on the Greek economy, it appears the government has found a solution to the various problems of joblessness and poor education. As KeepTalkingGreece reports, the Greek Education Ministry seek fill 1,100 job vacancies with teachers who will gladly and proudly work on "voluntary basis." As far as we remember, working for nothing is, err, slavery; but that's not it at all... as Education Minister Andreas Loverdos, the slave teachers will be rewarded with "bonus points" that will help them improve their hiring options in the future. Ironic that this should be happening as fast-food workers in America demand a higher minimum wage (maybe unemployed Greek teachers would be willing to flip burgers for money rather than teach young greeks for nothing).

Greek Education Ministry seek fill 1,100 job vacancies with teachers who would be gladly and proudly work on “voluntary basis”, that is without payment! According to daily TA NEA, Education Minister Andreas Loverdos considers to seek teachers who would work on voluntary basis in order to fill up vacancies in schools with teachers’ shortage.

The volunteers will be rewarded with “bonus points” that will help them improve their hiring options, should these be possible on day in the near or -most likely – far future.

As the loan agreement with the Troika ‘freezes’ replacement of retired personnel, the shortage of teachers in schools is impossible to be overcome.

“I cannot achieve the goal of hiring 1,100 teachers because I have no funds,” Minister Loverdos told TA NEA (via

If the state ‘hires’ personnel on volunteer basis, you can imagine what happens in the private sector of the crisis- and recession-hit country.

I am not sure whether Minister Loverdos, a neo-liberal from “socialist” PASOK,  seeks to create an example for new neoliberal labor conditions, but certainly this is the “LOL of the Day”!


BTW Education Minister Andreas Loverdos recently ordered an internal inquiry to find who was responsible that he did not attend the National Day religious mass on October 28th 2014. A week later, he officially admitted, it was the fault of his office, therefore “his own fault.” He promised to attend TWO religious masses on next national day, on March 25th.

PS I suppose, Samaras’ success story, primary surplus and successful return to markets has not reached the Education Ministry yet.

Centre of planning and Economic Research in Greece has proposed a controversial measure in order to deal with the problem of increasing unemployment in the country.

The measure includes unpaid work for the young and unemployed up to 24 years old, so that companies would have a strong motive to hire young employees. Practically, what is proposed is the abolition of the basic salary for a year. At the same time the “export” of young unemployed persons was also proposed to other countries abroad, as Greek businesses do not appear able to hire new personnel.

According to the National Confederation of Hellenic Commerce, unemployment especially hits the ages between 15-24. The unemployment rate in Greece stands at 24.6% while 57.2% of young people are without a job. The majority of the unemployed (71%) have had no work for 12 months or more, while 23.3 % of the total have never worked. There were 3,635,905 people employed and 1,345,387 unemployed.
Whether it’s Europe in the 1930’s or the US during the same period (conflicts between strikers, the National Guard and armed militias),unemployment can create a powerful cocktail of unrest.
But turning your nation's young into slaves does not seem like a good solution to us...

Signs of cabal defeat are now obvious but, expect one last big push for war
by Benjamin Fulford
Tuesday, November 11, 2014

The signs of cabal defeat are now proliferating to an extent that can no longer be hidden from any but the most deeply brainwashed people in the West. The most obvious sign is the APEC meeting winding up today in China. There three of the world’s largest oil producers, Canada, Russia and Qatar signed new deals to trade oil in Yuan. This makes it a mathematical certainty the petrodollar is finished. Russia also announced it was de-pegging the Ruble from the petrodollar.

In England, meanwhile, multiple senior politicians are working towards creating government currency to replace the 300 year old Rothschild fiat currency regime, according to MI5 sources. On November 20th, for the first time in 170 years, the British Parliament will discuss this issue. This is link to a paper on the subject that has been distributed to all British MPs:

The Japanese government is also seriously contemplating doing exactly the same thing. This means that all Japanese government debt will be written off in one fell swoop.

There are also indications the corporate government in the United States has gone into full crisis mode. For example, when this writer tried to access the official Russian Ria Novosti news site from his computer and his tablet device, he was redirected to an obvious disinformation site called “Sputnik News.” This came after the Russian government news site put out reports that American mercenaries were shelling the crash site of Malaysian airlines flight 17. This can only be described as an attempt by the American fascist regime to prevent the Europeans from finding out it was their supposed US allies who shot the passenger plane down.

The other sign that something big is going down with the US regime is the fact the Pentagon has warned its troops to not go out with Russian or Chinese women. This is a sort of measure taken in war time to prevent military secrets from leaking out. Finally, CNN has shut down its Russian operations, again the sort of thing that happens in war time.

The Russians, for their part, have started a major push to seize the remaining ethnically Russian districts in the Ukraine as well as the gas fields in the Sea of Azov.

The US corporate government is in no position to win any war against Russia and China at this point in time because neither its NATO allies nor Japan are going to go along with such a suicidal and world-destroying plan.

The more likely outcome will be the overthrow of the US corporate government and the restoration of the Republic of the United States of America.
