«Today there are over 2 million workers who work at 6 euros per hour gross. There are riders who run and make fatal accidents and earn 4 euros per hour. This is not tolerable. It is not tolerable in an advanced economy ». These are the words of the president of the INPS Pasquale Tridico at the debate held at «Futura», the initiative of the CGIL.
“The three emergencies in the country are women, young people and the South and the incentives for hiring should be focused on these.” According to Tridico, young people and women are the categories most affected by the pandemic and we need to think about them when reforms are made, at work and in the social security field. The minimum wage can help them especially and generates growth, a more efficient allocation of resources and investments, and an increase in productivity.
The INPS president then argued that we need to encourage training and help young people who often enter the labor market late and have low wages. To do this, one could also think about the free redemption of the degree for retirement purposes, to encourage studies. Tridico also reiterated the need for young people to have a guarantee pension by setting a threshold below which it is not possible to go to allow a dignified life.
Therefore, he also reiterated the proposal for a full decontribution for women who return to work after maternity, also to combat the phenomenon of blank resignations, which are estimated to amount to 30 and 40 thousand a year.
