The Greek secondary teachers' union OLME has rejected calls by the education minister to work an extra two hours a week to offset short staffing in public schools. The public education sector in Greece has suffered massively since the financial crisis hit the country in 2010. Many schools have been shut, teachers have been made redundant, teachers' pay has been cut almost in half and their pension rights attacked. All of these attacks were caused by the previous government doing the bidding of the so-called Troika - who are in the process of strangling the country in an attempt to wrest payments for bondholders and bankers.
