Thousands apply for street cleaning jobs - Thessaloniki, Greece

Thousands of people have thronged Thessaloniki (Greece's second largest city) in order to apply for one of 900 jobs as road cleaners. Applicants include people with professional qualificatiosn such as architects and civil engineers.

 

While Athens says that unemployment nationwide is 14.9% trade unions and opposition parties claim that the figure is much higher, especially in the north which has seen much of its industrial base close down or move to neighbouring Balkan countries.
