open racism in greek supermarkets

Store manager asked migrant worker from the former Soviet Union to withdraw because the super market Galaxias “gives jobs only to Greeks”.


An employ of a products promotion company was put to work in the chain of supermarkets Galaxias in Athens, promoting cosmetics. The origin of the employ, however, awakened the ‘Greek’ reflexes of the store manager, who, after a couple of hours announced her that she had to leave the store because she is not greek. The unlucky woman didnt hesitate to declare that she originates from the former Soviet union although she works in Greece for over 20 years as well as the last five years has taken the greek nationality. According the political website the incident took place in late December
