Is anti-austerity fever cooling off in Greece?

People take part in a May Day demonstration in central Athens on May 1, 2013.

Today is International Workers Day, and to mark the occasion, protestors in Greece are rallying against austerity. The demonstration comes just days after the country's government voted to allow 15,000 public employee layoffs.

The BBC's Mark Lowen joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson with the latest from Athens.
