Greece society in free fall

Nearly 1,000 Greeks lose their jobs each day; legions more are still employed but haven’t seen a paycheck in months.

In this Oct. 4, 2012, file photo, riot police clash with protesters inside Greece's Defense Ministry in Athens. Police clashed with scores of protesting shipyard workers after they forced their way into the grounds of Greece's Defense Ministry. The workers say they have not been paid in months. To the casual visitor, all might appear well in Athens, but scratch the surface and you find a society in freefall, ripped apart by the most vicious financial crisis the country has seen in half a century.
