Paraskevi Pappa, until this week employed at the Amalia Fleming state hospital, holds up a formal suspension order that places her on reduced pay pending dismissal or obligatory transfer to another state job, as she stands behind a banner which reads in Greek " layoffs," during a protest in Athens, on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013.
