Greece Speeds Cuts to Ensure Aid as Transport Workers Strike

Greece said it will accelerate budget cuts to keep emergency loans flowing, extending austerity measures that have deepened a recession and failed to ease doubts that it can avoid default.

Public-transit workers unions will hold a second 24-hour strike tomorrow, extending today’s action that shut subway, tram, train, and bus services, to protest cuts in civil servants’ wages and pensions.
