On 4 September a letter from the "Troika" (European Union, European Central Bank, and IMF) to Greece's government was leaked.
As well as demanding more cuts, the Troika insists that Greece "increase the number of maximum workdays to 6 days per week for all sectors; set the minimum daily rest to 11 hours; eliminate restrictions on minimum/maximum time between morning and afternoon shifts".
The coalition government is already planning 11.9 billion euros of new cuts.
Cops demonstrated in Athens after the government said that their wages and bonuses would not be exempt.
Backbenchers from New Democracy, Pasok, and Democratic Left have deplored the new cuts, but it remains to be seen how many actually vote against.
But, if parliament votes through the cuts and other measures, how will be enforced without the support of the police? Resistance is rising after a summer lull.
