"Those 'who have' should also pay," President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias said Tuesday during a meeting with the General Confederation of Workers of Greece (GSEE) presidium.

"Those 'who have' should also pay," President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias said Tuesday during a meeting with the General Confederation of Workers of Greece (GSEE) presidium.

"I think it is only fair that those 'who have' be obliged to open up their wallets," Papoulias said during a meeting with GSEE president Yiannis Panagopoulos and the new members of the umbrella federation's presidium.

Papoulias said spoke of the 'unbearable pain' of those hardest hit by the economic crisis, adding that further pressure could not be put on salary and pension earners.

On the trade union movement, Papoulias said that the unions "and all of us" are waging the battle, noting that this difficult period can be overcome only through battles in the context of democracy and social cohesion.
