A day after covering the British Airways strike ballot, I have landed in Greece to find out why many Greeks are calling for a national day of strikes and thousands will march on Parliament in Athens.
While that satisfies the stereotype of angry middle class workers in Europe who don't like the governments cutting pensions and raising taxes to battle budget deficits, I am also hearing many Greeks actually support the measures to bring down the budget deficit.
They know that the pain will be felt around Europe this Spring and Greece will be watched closely by the markets and by Brussels.
Wednesday will tell us a lot about how tough it will be for the government here to push tough fiscal measures.
This is something governments around Europe may face soon. Are they on the right course?
