General strike interrupts life in Greece

A general strike this week in Greece shut schools, businesses and even had some hospitals running with only emergency staff. Greeks were protesting pension reforms that have been demanded by the country’s international creditors. Pensions have already been cut in recent years. We’ll take a look at what kinds of reforms are being considered and how they could impact Greeks with Nick Malkoutzis, deputy editor of the Greek daily Kathimerini English Edition and editor of the economic and political analysis website Macropolis.
