Worse, compared to the 401,000 employees in the sector during the third quarter of 2008 – just before the recession cycle started – construction employed just 141,800 workers at end-2016, which means that at least 64.6 percent of the construction workers eight-and-a-half years ago have now been forced out of the sector.


    Consumers have cut their supermarket spending by up to 38 percent from 2015, according to an MRB Hellas survey.

  • The amount of money that taxpayers owe to the state soared by 5.47 billion euros in the first half of the year, according to the latest official data made available.

    Meanwhile, authorities are ordering about 900 confiscations a day in an effort to recoup the money owed by Greeks.

    The ministry officials expect that the extra debts which will be racked up this year will rise from 5.47 billion euros to around 12-13 billion by the end of the year.

    The birth rate is dropping, the population growth rate has been in negative territory for five years, and more than half a million people – most of them young – have left crisis-riven Greece.
