to demand a higher minimum wage and better rights for workers the federation of trade unions wants the government to address high rates of unemployment and poverty. there's anger in greece of a war cuts to pensions planned for next year latest figures show the majority of pensioners live around four hundred twelve dollars a month and that's the lowest rate since the two thousand and eight financial crisis john reports from athens. after a lifetime of building electric transformers and school studies managed to buy a house he borrowed against his monthly pension of twenty seven hundred dollars but after all standards he policies cut his pension repeatedly he and his wife were left subsisting on twenty five dollars a day off in a globe be that is the theft to work your entire life and sacrifice part of your salary for health and social security and when you claim your pension the state comes and says no you won't get it i'll take that the state is capitalist its main concern is to save the banks who saudi's is still luckier than most more than half
of these pensioners a living on fifteen dollars a day and things are about to become much worse they're out here protesting because next year the government is going to cut pensions by another eighteen percent the government was forced into this by the international monetary fund which wants to ensure that greece produces a surplus of three not presented you with which truly is very low but the latest figures last year produced a surplus of zero percent of g.d.p. which suggests that the government's initial assessment may have been correct but these measures were unnecessary there is a sweetener the government convinced its creditors to allow it to spend more on tax cuts and social spending especially for families with small children if the economy does better than expected that spending could now come into play but many pensioners. have lost any faith in social justice under the seeds of policy government young lady unemployment is such that how the best minds kids we spend
millions to raise and educate have gone abroad our government isn't left wing it's liberal prime minister suppressed represents big business and he's passed measures that socialist and conservatives couldn't pensions are key to the economy many extended families are surviving partly thanks to them so it comes as little surprise that even though they are so low there are still two hundred twenty thousand people on the pensions waiting list that just isn't enough money to start paying them jumps at all plus al-jazeera athens all migrants from central america are arriving at the us mexico border many of them plan to seek asylum even though the u.s. president has vowed not to let them in their relying on help from volunteers to plan their next move as manuel at apollo reports from mexico. after an arduous journey across mexico and more asylum seekers from central america have arrived in p one. at a migrant children only a short distance from the border mexican volunteers are providing new arrivals with
food and humanitarian aid but many say the supplies are lacking. at the moment we are asking the city of tijuana and christian churches for a future we need this more than anything it's for the children. while assistance from the mexican government is limited the city of the one has stepped in to provide a few basic services. can finance here now this is a question of international law where the city supports migrants with health care shelter and other basic services such as blankets or diapers for children. you know . for many the stop is only temporary immigration attorneys are helping prepare those with a better chance of qualifying for asylum mostly single mothers and their children nobody is you know told what to do it's more about giving people all the information possible so they can make the best possible the decision for them so. and their families local activists have set up shelters for migrants this one has already run out of space for new arrivals many will wait in these tents until what
they hope will be the start of another journey on the other side of the u.s. border an example of. the one of. the white house says the ruling against the trumpet ministrations decision to end the dhaka program is wrong the plan shields thousands of young immigrants not as dreamers for deportation and gives them work punnets the judge ruled that terminating the program was based on virtually unexplained grounds the government has ninety days to make its case for ending the program. dr program violates federal law president obama went around congress and created the illegal doc doc a program we believe the judge's ruling is extraordinarily broad and wrong on the law what's worse is that it creates an incentive for more illegal immigrant youth to come here and causes them to expect similar judicial policies be applied to them this ruling is good news for smuggling organizations and criminal networks and horrible news for our national security it's time for congress to do what the president has called on them to do and offer to be part of it actually fix this
problem britain's parliament is set to debate remaining inside the a use customs union to leaving the european union prime minister to resign may wants the u.k. to quit the tariff free zone but many politicians believe that that would be an economic disaster and that's got the fishing industry in scotland particularly worried as laurence leamer reports. if there's anything liable to annoy the supporters of brics states it's europeans taking fish from british waters but on the east coast of scotland there's another side to the story the sale thought at seven o'clock. you know it's may day five hours ago this warehouse was stacked with fish by now it's being prepared for market across the u.k. and abroad more than a hundred. and it needs to go fast to fetch a decent price. could leave the market here about eleven o'clock process and out that evening and catch ferry in the morning or go through the tunnel whatever. any
delay at all to this volume. means an expanse or a lower price for the process which in these times is critical for. many fisherman support breck's it in the interests of protecting their waters and stops but just as many in the fishing industry want open borders with europe can they have both protecting the rights of british fishermen has become a toe technic issue for many leading breakfast as they say the u.k. must leave the european free trade area but staying in the european free trade area is crucial for those parts of the fishing industry which need to move their stock quickly to some of the best restaurants in places like france and spain and that's a big problem cullen's thing which is a local delicacy but not if you live in the post for a week. to make a point about what happens to fish if it gets stuck in a truck for too long the local m.p. here sent the government minister in charge of bricks it's
a traditional fish pie in the post government ministers who support breck's it he says don't understand their own constituency. i believe they're simply choosing to look at the divisions in the tory party they're making the decisions based on politics not economics not the interests of the people in these islands it's time they looked at the harsh realities of where they got the story. of course it isn't the only fish anything perishable or goods reliant on a fast turnaround could be affected disastrously if british trucks are forced to queue for days before entering the continent they were in continue discussions with u.k. government and scottish government i think the concern is we've had real clarity as to what you can government don't want which is the customs union but real uncertainty still as to what the future does hold. in peterhead they're expanding the ports because they believe their markets will grow. supporters of the sure continental europe will fall for a deal on taxes and tariffs because they love to eat british fish the livelihoods
