Three in four Greeks consider that "the worst is yet to come" in terms of the impact of the economic crisis on employment, according to a Eurobarometer poll released in Brussels on Wednesday.

This is considerably higher than the average among Europeans as a whole, where 48 percent consider that the impact of the crisis on employment will become worse. Conversely, only 22 percent of Greeks consider that the repercussions of the crisis have reached their peak, compared with 42 percent of Europeans.

After Greeks, most pessimistic among Europeans are the Portuguese (73 percent think the worst is yet to come and 20 percent that the crisis is at its peak) and the Irish (72 percent see the job crisis becoming worse and 21 percent believe it is at its peak). Most optimistic are the Luxembourgians, with 47 percent considering that there is worst to come and 47 percent believing that the crisis has reached its peak.
