Currently in Greece, a lot of workers who work by the hour get paid simply the agreed amount multiplied by the hours that they work, even though this is not what they are entitled to. The Greek labor laws give the right to workers to get extra pay for several conditions, but unfortunately most people are unaware of this. plirosouSOSTA is a simple Android application written in Java that wants to inform users for their payment rights. It lets a user to record their working hours. Then according to their agreed payment, age, years of experience the application calculates what they should get paid according to the current (01/2018) Greek labor laws.
