Beware the snare of clever employers that will lose no time in taking advantage of your ignorance of labor laws in Greece.If you find work through an employment agency in your own country, your rights will usually be protected, but venture out on your own and you are sure to be exploited.At one interview for an administrative position in a school, I was asked by my male interviewer how I would handle sexual harassment coming from my boss (in other words, himself) versus an overture by the janitor.Needless to say, I didnt pursue that position further!You will quickly realize that even if your husband thinks he loves you, it is really just taken for granted by him and his entire kin that you are one of his appendages.There is a reason for the Greek tradition of stomping on your husbands feet during the wedding ceremony: success in this venture is said to guarantee a wife the upper hand throughout her marriage.As a tourist, you can leave behind that dreary job, the relationship youve squeezed dry, and become someone new in a country with a beauty that few places can match, and a passionate people that truly enjoy having a good time.

You come out cheaper and far less hassled if you just pay someone who works there to pass it for you.
Try to do things the proper way in Greece and you will be strangled by red tape and gagged with fines.
