Greek civil servants lose paid leave for computer use

Sept. 13, 2013 at 5:32 PM   |   Comments

ATHENS, Greece, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Greek officials announced civil servants will no longer receive an extra six days of paid leave each year for using computers.

Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said Thursday that getting rid of the spare paid leave days would be the equivalent of hiring 5,000 more public sector workers, Ekathimerini reported Friday.

Mitsotakis told Skai TV he is confident the government will reach its goals for public sector employment to qualify for a bailout payment in October.
