Default 1700 Euros per month in Greece

HI All,
I have seen a job paying 1700Euros per month in Greece.
Can you live on a salary like that ?

Depends where in Greece, how you want to live and is it before or after tax?
Many people in Europe don't earn that much and manage, but in a city like Athens you obviously need more money.

Likewise, is it gross or net?
After a quick read of the following link in English, I didn't see any table indicating the social contribution rates that employees have to pay:
http://ec.europa.eu/employment_socia...0Greece_en.pdf

but this link, in French, clearly states what percentage is deducted from a Greek's salary for the healthcare, pension and unemployment funds:
Les cotisations en Grèce
According to Wikipedia, the PAYE system works in Greece, so you'll be able to calculate your take-home salary if the salary that you have indicated is indeed gross.
Hope this helps! Must admit I know nothing about Greece, but there aren't many members in Greece, and google is everyone's friend!
