The idea of George Papandreou’s government to introduce cash registers everywhere until the end of 2010 appalled taxi drivers and gas station owners. Taxi drivers held their first 24-hour strike yesterday and decided to hold a second one on Friday, February19. During their protest march in front of the Ministry of Finance, they categorically stated that they will not put cash registers in the cars and will not keep accounting books of their revenue and expenditure.

The same discontent was expressed by the Federation of gas station owners in Greece, who threatened that if the government does not reverse its decision on the introduction of cash registers, they will respond with a strike. The federation finds offensive and disapproves of the unannounced inspections by the tax authorities and talks about a smear campaign by the authorities. According to the gas station owners the government measures will reduce gas consumption and will ultimately hit the interests of their clients.
