Newspapers such asThe Economist andThe New York Times started the new year with articles that highlight the efforts of right-wing interests to make public services workers the scapegoats for the economic crisis. PSI and EPSU have written a joint response to The Economist. PSI affiliates such as AFSCME have launched new campaigns to combat the lies. The European Trade Union Confederation has warned the European Commission about its role in implementing the EU/International Monetary Fund rescue packages in Greece and Ireland.
Yes please, the article is bad but what you can read in the comments section is even worse.
PSI's Canadian affiliate NUPGE (National Union of Public and General Employees) has also responded to the Economist with this letter to the editor.
