An overwhelmingly majority of students, young adults and the unemployed voted 'no' in Sunday's historic referendum in Greece. Eighty-five per cent of Greeks between the ages of 18 and 24 voted 'no,' according to polling firm Public Issue, while 72.9 per cent of the unemployed also voted to reject the creditors' bailout terms. At 44.9 support, the 65-and-up age group was the only one not to give majority backing to the 'no' side. Even a slight majority of Greeks "living comfortably" voted 'no' on Sunday.
