minister step down for failing to stop the economic crisis and the strict austerity measures which resulted in poverty and desperation. the biggest problem in our industry is the message to the self-employed workers insurance organization and heavy taxation if it takes you makes a profit of five thousand euros the government takes almost seventy percent of that it's not the first time great taxi drivers have reached boiling points but this new calculation which requires them to pay tax on money they haven't even earned yet could send money and so financial dead end. unfortunately our country's becoming the pakistan of europe history will repeat itself will have riots it will get ugly no one is offering any solutions so people don't know what to do the government is nonexistent it's subservient to the troika and their economic interest union reps say they feel like slaves working under a government that doesn't serve their interests it's already hard to find a job in this economy and also lucky enough to have one fear that heavy taxation will eventually force them out onto the streets as well what rising taxes
