Creating jobs is top priority

Unemployment has reached particularly alarming levels, especially when it comes to society?s younger members.

It?s a phenomenon which is currently posing an open threat to the country?s social cohesion and stability.

That is why the number one priority of both society and politicians ought to be the creation of jobs, as soon as possible.

There are several sectors and opportunities that the country could take good advantage of, provided it liberates the private sector from the chains of corruption, bureaucracy and exorbitant taxation.

What is also needed at the same time is for everyone to stand up and defend the entire private sector from all the self-appointed protectors of employees, whether these are political parties or trade unionists.

The reason for this is because their irrational and extremist behavior has had the complete opposite effect and has abolished jobs and kept away anyone thinking of investing in Greece.
