Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In my country, from the extreme right to the extreme left, all talk about strategies to reboot economic GROWTH. The unions want to maintain or increase salaries. The conservative party thinks (and probably correctly) that it can gain votes by promising no salary cuts to civil servants (in exchange of only 1 admission for every 5 retirements).

1 admission for every 5 retirements. Think about the impact of that in the quality of public services and unemployment. But it is seen as a good strategy...
