Thousands of students are taking to the streets to protest against the government's labour and education reforms. Protests are taking place across 60 cities and towns across the country as students demand ‘better schools, jobs and a different country’, which they believe premier Renzi's so-called Jobs Act, which passed a vote of confidence, will fail to deliver. The Union for university students said in a statement that Renzi's controversial labour reforms, which will make it easier for companies to hire and fire, will not guarantee security or jobs for young people: ‘In reality, the Jobs Act will only increase the precariousness without guaranteeing protection to those entering the labour market...the reforms were carried out without listening to young people’.
