Greece_StrikeThe tourism in Greece hits as low as there was a 24 hours strike in the hospitality and tourism sector for the deterioration of worker’s right, when the arrival of the tourists in the country, boosts the tourism industry.



The country of Olympics- Greece, is located in the south eastern part of Europe with many natural and historical wonders. Greece expects to greet at about 300 million foreign tourists in 2017. This will bring in the revenue worth 14 billion euros. The tourist industry of Greece employs around one fifth of the workforce of Greece.



The growth of tourism with 30 million tourists that are told is supposed to benefit not only the employers but us and the country. They work very hard, but the hotel companies did not pay. The average salary of the hotel workers are just 420 euros all over the country and they tell us that with these salaries the workers will have better days,  said Nikos Papageorgiou, Member of the Union of Employees in Hotels and Restaurants.



These strikes are common in Greece but fear the strike would cause disruption to service at hotels and tourists sites were unfounded as turnout was low. For this tourism is hitting a low. Victor Tice, a US tourist from Boston sympathised with the worker’s strike. The workers all over the world did not get benefit necessarily from tourist dollars. The tourist just checked into a nice hotel and the staff there will not get much of what the tourists are saying.



The majority of hotel businesses worked normally. The fear of private sector workers is to lose the jobs if they protest consecutively.
