The next holiday will be without waste. Like every new year, prices increase and holiday layoffs are expected. Christmas and New Year bring many worries for those who live in the uncertainty of the workplace.
Bad news from the media and workers’ associations
Assolavoro has already announced that starting in January 2019 there will be 53 thousand people who will not be able to work. In fact, through the employment agencies, they will have reached 24 months of employment, the maximum for fixed-term work.
Many workers will remain unemployed because of the decree of dignity. Meanwhile, the GDP is growing. Yet the third recession in Italy seems to beat the door. Recall that Assolavoro is the National Association of Employment Agencies.
The Assolavoro information
Assolavoro highlights that it would be important to act in favor of the workers, because no positive sign has arrived. Federmeccanica intervenes in this regard and in relation to its investigations, states: “With reference to the Decree of Dignity, 30% of companies in the metalworking sector will not renew, on the expiration date, existing fixed-term contracts.”
The bad situation will affect everyone. It will especially affect older workers, who will find themselves at home, with little chance of being hired, despite years of accumulated experience. On the other hand, young Italians will not see a rosy future either.
Holiday layoffs are a symptom of a larger problem
Even those who graduate college will not be safe from unemployment. Certainly not because there is no desire to adapt to a job, but because there are few companies that take and many that close.
Another Italian paradox is that we accept interns and apprentices to gain support from the state, yet, at the same time, we need experience. Graduates are not able to learn how to work. In the Italian school, the laboratories are less and less.
The possibility remains of expatriation, young talents leave Italy, disappointed and abandoned to themselves. When will it be possible to solve this serious problem?
