The workers who will stay at home on Monday because they have no Green pass

There are about two million workers who from Monday 18 October will not be able to go to the factory or office because they are unable to get the swab to obtain the Green pass. Unfortunately, pharmacies and public / private facilities dedicated to this service are not able to carry out a sufficient number of tests daily to cover the demand. Workers who, despite themselves, will be forced to stay at home without pay, as reported by the Studies Office of the CGIA of Mestre.

Workers without a Green pass

According to government estimates, 3 million Italian workers would be without the green certificate, about 13 percent of the employed in our country. People who to access their workplace by the end of the year will have to swab every 2 days to obtain the green pass. Currently the offer is much lower: yesterday, for example, the number of tampons made in Italy was just over 506 thousand. Assuming an increase in productivity on the part of pharmacies and facilities dedicated to carrying out these tests, the day after tomorrow the total number could rise to 700,000. If we add to this number the more than 300,000 people who for health reasons are not required to have certification, there would remain, calculates the CGIA, without a pass about 2 million workers.

Data from the Regions

There are no precise data on the number of unvaccinated workers, underlines the CGIA. The only ones available are from the Prime Minister’s office and photograph the number of people not yet vaccinated as of 8 October in the age group between 20 and 59 years. Cohort that includes the vast majority of workers present in the country. Obviously, the unemployed and the inactive are also included among these people. The most ” no vax ” region is Sicily, the percentage is 24.3 per cent and is made up of 625,565 unvaccinated people. Followed by Calabria with a rate of 23.4 per cent (226,745 not immunized), the Autonomous Province of Bolzano with 22.7 per cent (63,570 not vaccinated), Valle d’Aosta with 21 per cent (13,017 non vax ) and Marche with 20.4 per cent (156,724 unvaccinated). The most virtuous situations, on the other hand, are found in Lombardy (14.3 percent of unvaccinated), Lazio (14.2 percent) and Tuscany (13.8 percent). Among the 4 macro areas of the country, the South has the highest number of unvaccinated people (2,143,769 equal to 20 per cent of the total population between 20 and 59 years). Finally, in Italy, the ” no vaxes ” of working age are 5,432,118, equal to 17.4 per cent of the 20-59 year-old cohort.

The announcement flopped

In mid-September, ministers Renato Brunetta, Andrea Orlando and Roberto Speranza had emphasized this several times when presenting the decree requiring the use of the Green pass to enter workplaces. The success of the measure was based on the announcement effect, i.e. that a large part of the 4 million Italian workers who were not yet vaccinated at the time did so within a month, i.e. by 15 October, the date on which it was expected to enter into force. of the provisions of the decree. To underline this is the CGIA of Mestre which today talks about the flop of the announcement effect. Unfortunately, things did not go that way and only a minority in the meantime got vaccinated. The others, on the other hand, have decided not to.
