    Default Mothers forced to sell their children :human toll of Greece's Euro meltdown

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...-meltdown.html

    Kasiani’s children were born in a country which has been brought to its knees by crushing debt. This was built up by Greece’s huge profligacy after joining the European Union and then milking the system for everything it could get.

    The public sector wage bill doubled in the past decade as perks and fiddles reminiscent of Britain in the union controlled 1970s flourished. Paying taxes became optional for the middle and upper classes and corruption was rife.

    Until two years ago, the big fat Greek gravy train carried on racing towards the buffers. Even pastry chefs and hairdressers were listed among the 600 ‘professions’ allowed to retire at 50 (with a state pension of 95 per cent of their final year’s earnings) on account of the ‘arduous and perilous’ nature of their work.

    this must be the new Greece. The same selfishness that infected the rest of the world is now there too. In my parents generation other family members would beg, bowwow, and and cram three families into a small house before they allowed the children to be taken to an orphanage or home.
    If the welfare benefits ever stop here we will be faced with mass abandonment of children too.

    Danger, danger, pastry chef Will Robinson. You nearly slipped on that pat of butter.

    Sure does show the gutless wonders that inhabit this planet. There is no way in He double hockey sticks that my baby gets taken care of by anybody else unless my wife and I are dead.

    The article has me confused: I see a woman who had to put her children into an orphanage. That's bad, but how is that selling them? Because I only know of one reason a child is sold or bought...
