Hellenic Federation of Enterprises
Members of the Communist Party-affiliated union PAME vandalized the entrance to the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) in central Athens with red paint early on Tuesday.
The PAME members targeted SEV's offices during an anti-austerity protest.
In a statement, PAME blamed Greek industrialists for repeated cuts to salaries and compromising workers' rights over the years.
The Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) has again warned that overtaxation could keep the country's growth rates at subdued levels, while the obstacles the government is putting in the way of big investment projects such as the Halkidiki gold mines (Eldorado Gold) and the development of the former airport at Elliniko (Lamda Development) serve as a deterrent to other would-be investors.
The Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) is calling for the reorganization of the labor market's monitoring mechanisms and the penalty system, along with the reduction of non-salary obligations (taxes, social security contributions etc), in order to help combat undeclared or partly declared labor.
The Greek economy will increase its export activity if it can improve the specialization of its human capital in technologically advanced sectors through the cultivation of skills in the workforce and the population in general, the weekly economic bulletin of the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) argues.
