Italy -Unions protest as unemployment fund runs out of money -April 14, 2013

Trade unions have organised a protest in front of the Parliament after it became clear that the fund helping factories to put workers on part-time or temporary unemployment benefits to avoid their layoff, will run out of money by June. The unions demand a cash injection of one billion euros into the fund in order to avoid massive layoffs that would further hurt the country’s troubled economy. Thousands of people turned up to support the demand.
