Employees walk by empty check in counters at Eleftherios Venizelos airport during a 24-hour general strike in Athens, Wednesday, Oct. 5 2011. Greek civil servants walked off the job on a 24-hour strike, paralyzing the public sector in a protest over ever-deeper austerity measures applied as the government struggles to avoid a catastrophic default. Air traffic controllers joined the strike, grounding all flights to and from Greek airports. (AP Photo) less
