Italy -Union federation challenges pay statistics -September 14, 2011

Fabrizio Fratini, General Secretary of the FP-CGIL public services federation, has criticized the Istat statistics agency for releasing data showing that on average public sector pay is 11.6% higher than private sector pay. The union makes the point that the comparison does not take into account the different occupations in the public and private sector and the different levels of qualification and education, and that therefore it is not really a fair comparison.
