(Teleborsa) – “Up Citizenship income and active employment policies, to make a serious reflection, we must start from the facts.
The first is that 2/3 of the income earners, as INPS recalled, are not directly employable. It is not they who “crowd out” the job market, but rather people for whom, in many cases, we must also imagine a basic training course. The second, on the other hand, relates to Naspi’s earners, which are 1.4 million. And having recently exited the labor market, they are potentially those closest to reintegration ”.
The Deputy Minister of Economy and Finance writes it on social media, Laura Castelli emphasizing that “active policies, especially in this particular historical moment, must be seen in an overall way. With a reasoning that takes into account all these aspects, and that can be put in place, thanks to 5 billion of the PNRR, the right tools for the training of those looking for work and those who have to defend the job. At least for a moment, it would be important to put ideological positions aside and work, all together, to refine that social safety net, which our country has been missing for too long and which we, with the Income and the Citizenship Pension, have introduced “.
Castelli continues: “income support measures, and the fight against poverty, have been present for years practically throughout Europe and a civilized country, like Italy, certainly cannot think of leaving any of its citizens on the margins of society. Without the income, in 2020, 3.7 million people would have been below the poverty line, with a devastating impact during the pandemic.
The tool is highly innovative, and today it can lead the way in an organic and structured reform of social safety nets. Thus putting it in a system with all the other income support measures, which must necessarily be reorganized.
We find no excuses for not addressing the real problems. For too many years this country has not been able to reintegrate people into the world of work, and the collaboration between institutional levels is often lacking. Now the course must be changed ”.
