Greek shopkeepers slam Sunday shopping law
July 14 , 2014
Shopkeepers and employees are protesting against a Greek law that allows shopping on Sundays in the country’s tourist areas, as per media reports.
While the government says that the law will help in creating 300,000 jobs, owners of small shops argue it will help only larger stores. The Greek Orthodox church has also slammed the move.
On the first Sunday of the new shopping regime, there was a strike called by the Federation of Greek Private Employees. The federation claimed the strike was a major success.
