ABSTRACT
The article discusses the austerity measures imposed by the Greek government when its parliament abolished social housing which provides low-cost dwellings to workers, and the Workers' Social Benefits Organization. It states that the biggest outrage was that the abolished benefits were not funded by the state but by the workers and employers themselves. It also states that the eradication of these organizations were needed to help the Greek government pay its debt.
