"Very concerned about this news coming from Greece. This is the path of involution: less time, worse lives, low-cost economy," said the Spanish minister.
The Greek Parliament approved this Friday a labor reform, promoted by the conservative government of Kyriakos Mitsotakis, which allows, among other measures, to impose a sixth day of working hours and for workers to voluntarily opt for a second job of up to eight hours a day. , which added to the main activity of eight hours a day, allows workers to work up to 13 hours a day.
Likewise, it introduces a contract for "on-call employees" which in reality means that workers will not have a fixed schedule, but will work when the employer requires it, as long as there is prior notice of at least 24 hours in advance.
In this regard, Minister Díaz has assured that, faced with the situation in Greece, the Government of Spain will continue "working" to "reconcile the economy with life and the planet."
