The way they treated and continue to treat Greece and the European south in general is despicable.
What the heck is that supposed to mean?!
So the Greeks and others in the south of Europe collectively borrowed a huge amount of money to fund an unsustainable way of life built around not paying taxes, barely working, and retiring early.
Then when it comes time to repay those loans they find that they can't. After all, you typically have to do this little thing called work in order to generate the wealth necessary to repay loans.
And now the countries that initially loaned the money should just let Greece and the others off the hook?
That would be irresponsible!
I suppose you were hiding under a rock all these years? It's the only excuse for your ignorant comment about what's happening more than 6 years now here.
We work and a lot harder and longer hours than the Germans for example. And for much less wage (for the people that still have jobs).With the stupid and criminal austerity policies (that Finland along with others insisted) the economy tanked,the unemployment soared
