Some protests started late last night, and violence has already erupted in Spain where police clashed with protestors. Dozens of people have been arrested, and 15 people were injured.

Today workers in public transport, at schools, and government offices are expected to walk off their jobs. Already disruptions are evident across Europe with trains and flights canceled.

UBS economist Paul Donovan quipped that the coordinated strikes across Europe, known as “the Day of Action”, translates as the “Day of No Work.”

Young people in Europe are being encouraged to not work as well, which shouldn’t come as a challenge given more than 23% of them are without jobs.
