ATHENS -- "I am fully aware that the situation is tragic, especially for tourism workers, many of whom, perhaps, have seasonal jobs," SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras said on Monday during a meeting with the Federation of Food and Tourism Employees.

"We have seen Mr. Mitsotakis 'selling sunsets' in Santorini in the past few days, but at the same time tourism is entering a dark tunnel and tourism workers are experiencing days similar to the most difficult ones of the memorandum years," he said.
