ATHENS – In a social media message to mark Labour Day on May 1, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Sunday commented on the increase in the basic wage that comes into force on Sunday and noted that the government was supporting workers with actions, not slogans.

Also, at the same time, an increase in the unemployment benefit by 31 euros a month. Now is the time of the citizens and especially the weakest. We honour the people of labour not with slogans but with actions!” Mitsotakis said.
