Minister of Labor Kyriakos Kousios has invited pensioners who receive less than 710 euros to meet with him in person and discuss the claims made during the Alpha Good Morning show.
"I do not accept that there is a pensioner who receives less than €710 if he is alone or less than €1210 if he has a partner," he said after the show's host informed him that she receives messages from viewers who claim they receive less. Mr. Kousios responded that they are not telling the truth. He then proceeded to say that any pensioner claiming to receive less than the minimum amount of 710 euros as a single or 1210 euros as a couple will be supplemented by the Ministry of Labor.
"Anyone who does not receive the stated amount should come to the Ministry, and I will accept them regardless of the appointments I have for that day. I'll set aside an entire day from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. for people who don't get 710 to come and meet with me."
Mr. Kousios concluded his statement by saying that no one would show up to meet with him on this matter.
