The Communist Party accused on Monday the government of mocking the people by pretending wages in the civil sector will increase when in fact they will be cut, ahead of the vote on 13 prior actions in parliament on Tuesday.

“The government, continuing its mockery, is preparing to vote for yet another package of prior actions because it is keen to complete the dirty work that left unfinished by New Democracy and PASOK,” the party said in a statement.

“It’s a mockery to call the cuts in wages to the majority of civil servants as increases, when they have already lost more than 6 wages per year,” it added.
