Shattered Illusion

It seems that the idea that the Athens Olympics would create jobs was but a fanciful illusion.

It is reported that 50,000 people, who were engaged for the construction and maintenance of Olympic facilities, are yet again unemployed now that the Games have ended.

Additionally, the majority of the 150,000 people who got Olympic jobs were, in fact, economic migrants; residing with their families in Athens.

It seems that the local Athens authorities are now faced with the task of moving these people to places of employment.

Precisely how to they intend to do that I wonder?
