Statement by Labour Minister Effie Achtsioglou to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) on the increase of the minimum wage and the abolition of the sub-minimum wage: "Today we are taking a big step towards the recovery of the labour market in our country. Today a new period begins for young workers in this place. A period with more rights, more dignity. With the increase in the minimum wage and the abolition of the sub-minimum wage, we are restoring part of the austerity policies deprived of the workers. And this is an act of justice."
