ATHENS, Greece – Greece’s future in the euro is growing increasingly precarious as violence erupts on the streets of Athens during a general strike.

Thousands of people marched through the streets to protest the cuts, which include a 22% drop in the minimum wage at time when the unemployment rate is over 20% and the economy is in a fifth year of recession.

If Greece’s government fails to meet Europe’s demands, the debt-ridden country faces a chaotic debt default next month that would send shockwaves around the world.
