To answer these employers' absurdities, we, workers, irrespective of age, gender and nationality, must be actively organizing our societies, stepping up class antagonism, and knowing that the societies that lead to impoverishment tend to revolt, to claim our rights until we get what we own. ---- In one more summer in Greece the crisis with a lot of heat, some have been on an island for several months, not for holidays, but to survive. It appears that in a scattering landscape, with youth unemployment reaching 50% now, the tourism industry maintains a (even small) capacity to absorb labor - especially youth. Experts have been saying it for years: Greece's future is necessarily going through tourism. ---- But what's behind the showcase we see as "customers"? ---- How honest is this smile with which our employees work in the shop?

And how much is the dignity and the need for survival of the workers to be valued for the bosses?

Many employees, especially young people, trying to raise money in the summer to make it out in the winter, do not make holidays, work and suffer abuse of their rights by the bosses who are accustomed to exploiting to a large extent the workers who go to work for a season, believing that once an employee works for them he is essentially their property and is not entitled to privacy.

The most frequent exploitation phenomenon in many tourist areas is that the worker is declared for 8 hours of work, 5 days a week, and ends up working for 9 hours and 10 hours, 7 days a week, with overtime (obviously) not being paid .

It is also customary for bosses to delay workers' wages (if they pay all wages together), which means that the worker is required to survive at his own expense as long as he stays on the island. We also have to take the fact that the money given by the bosses is always almost black, while the hours change constantly according to the appetites of the employer, without asking the employee.

Very often the demands of the bosses reach an outrageous point, since many of them prohibit their workers even sitting on the job, taking breaks, and even speaking in the dress / style of the workers, since they require their staff not to has dainted nails, earrings, tattoos and other accessories that can make them lose their valuable customers.

Some bosses pull the rope even further, and wanting to have absolute control, they have the key to the toilet in the shop, because as they say, the workers "bow off" on the pretext of their visit to the toilet and sit above the toilet, that it should. Last but not least, employers do not hesitate to cut money from workers' wages in either cases, either as an example or on the grounds that the shop's internal 'rules' have not been met (for example, employees were talking a lot of time , sat while it was banned etc).

The only benefit that those who go to work in the season usually enjoy is that their employer provides them with shelter and food, but this is not entirely positive, as it is commonplace that the rooms where the employees are staying are of low quality and do not even have the basic amenities. Very often cases are reported where these rooms did not even have windows, they were very small and could be used exclusively for sleeping and nothing more.

To answer these employers' absurdities, we, workers, irrespective of age, gender and nationality, must be dynamically organized into our societies, exacerbate class antagonism, and knowing that the societies that lead to impoverishment tend to revolt, to claim our rights until we get what we own.
