A 15 percent of jobs in the public sector to be filled by persons with disabilities

A 15 percent of jobs in the public sector will be filled by persons with disabilities, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Friday said in a special event to honour the members of the Greek mission to the 2016 Rio Paralympics.
Tsipras announced that the relevant bill will be tabled in parliament in the next few days.

Addressing the athletes with disabilities, the prime minister underlined that the measure served as “tangible support to your daily struggle, but also a constant reminder to society that you are not second-class citizens,” adding that the quality and the morals of a country are primarily reflected in the treatment of its weakest members, so as to make them even stronger.
