Commitment to progressively arrive at a five-point tax cut. Two thirds to workers, one third to companies. Of course it has a significant cost and is a medium-term commitment. “Giorgia Meloni said this in her reply to the Senate. “The fight against poor work is a priority for all of us, but let’s understand how to fight it. I think that the legal minimum wage risks being not a solution but a red herring because we all know that a large part of employee employment contracts are covered by national contracts which already provide for minimum wages. So the problem for me is to extend collective bargaining. But why are wages so low in Italy? Because the tax is 46%. For this we need a cut (by 5 points, ed) of the tax wedge. “Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said this during the reply to the debate of confidence.

This is why we take on the responsibility of also giving speed to the implementation of the PNRR “. Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said this in response to the confidence debate in the Senate.” If you can show me when I ever said I wanted to overturn the PNRR you I will be grateful.
