Another Reason Greece Is Bankrupt



March 11, 2010 – Comments (1)

Greece has 580 "dangerous" jobs where workers are guaranteed early retirement at age 50 (for women) and 55 (for men). Among these daredevil professions:

"radio and television presenters, who are thought to be at risk from the bacteria on their microphones, and musicians playing wind instruments, who must contend with gastric reflux as they puff and blow." 

I want to see the clarinet-cross at the X-Games next year.

Greece isn't exceptional in this regard -- Similar situations exist in France also.

A friend of mine manages the World Bank's anti-malaria program. She's in Nigeria right now and she recently caught malaria herself. Now that's what I call genuine job-related risk!
