Even Uncle Sam ain't THAT cheap

The Greek Parliament has been hunkering over a new labor bill over the last couple of months. The main things I know about it are:

1) Workers are pissed and have been striking a shitstorm lately

2) They want to reduce overtime pay to 1.25 from 1.5 (so to time and a quarter from time and a half, which is what it was in the U.S.)

Now, I thought a decisive vote had been made on the bill last week, but I am not entirely sure. Even so, that overtime pay reduction is bullshit.

For once I agree with lazy Greek workers.
