Labor Notes’ Mark Brenner Counters Fox News Budgeting Cutting Fever
4 May 2010 — The imagery couldn’t be less subtle. Against a backdrop of Greek workers in the streets fighting budget cuts and layoffs (and the Greek police), Fox News host Neil Cavuto asks Labor Notes’ Mark Brenner “Is this coming here?” Too bad they aren’t interested in real solutions. Corporate honchos and their Wall Street pals may have crashed the economy, but somehow it’s teachers and librarians that we ought to blame. Mark gives as good as he gets, putting the blame for our economic woes squarely where it belongs. Wall Street has already picked our pockets, now they’re trying to steal our pants.

Greece: May 20 general strike call
Greece’s two main public and private sector unions have announced a May 20 general strike to protest pension reforms.
The work stoppage will be the latest in a series of protests that have erupted since the Greek government adopted a plan requiring $30 billion in cuts in order to secure a $145 billion international bailout package.
The proposed austerity measures include reductions in civil service pensions and wage freezes.
Greece’s debt crisis has raised concerns that financial and social instability could spread to other European countries, including Spain and Portugal.
On May 12, the European Commission proposed that European Union countries submit their national budget plans to the commission for review before taking the proposals to their national parliaments.

Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez has warned that her country’s experience shows that austerity measures are exactly the wrong medicine in a debt crisis – and so Europe’s rescue plan for Greece is “condemned to failure”: here.
