Italy - Wages and inequality - June 30, 2017

The statistical office ISTAT published employment and wage data. Istat also published its annual report 2017 on low-income and inequality. The reports reveal that almost half a million of the 3.5 million civil servants work in precarious forms of labour. Some 300,000 workers are engaged in temporary contracts and another 200,000 workers in freelance contracts with no or little job security. The working conditions in the public sector have not been renewed for eight years. The responsible ministry announced that talks will start soon.
