Speech by Marco Lacarra, deputy of the PD
Difficulty for the sector tourism and not only in the search for personnel, citizenship income under accusation. In many quarters it is considered the cause for which, especially young people, give up working, already having an income due to this subsidy.
“To believe that the cause of the lack of personnel in certain sectors, complained by many entrepreneurs in this period, is the Citizenship Income is a simplistic narrative – underlines the deputy Pd, Marco Lacarra -. The Citizenship Income, even with its limitations, has helped a large portion of the Italian population in recent years. This tool is fundamental in a state of law that wants to define itself as civil, rather we need to think about how to improve it “.
«It cannot be considered normal to eliminate an important subsidy such as the Citizenship Income – adds Lacarra – and to think that the next day all those who receive it can find a job. We must ensure that it becomes more and more a transitory subsidy, working on active employment policies that help the unemployed and people in difficulty to enter or re-enter the world of work ».
And with regard to the personal problem complained of by many sectors, the deputy Pd adds: “It is essential that workers have the right salary commensurate with their profile and the type of work they do, just as it is necessary that contracts are respected and that they are any overtime and all the amounts due have been recognized. We cannot think, especially after two years of the pandemic, that we can “be satisfied” in order to have a job ».
