Sparks a “The air that pulls” (La7) between the senator of Brothers of Italy, Daniela Santanchè, and the general secretary of the Cgil Maurizio Landini.
The parliamentarian accuses the trade unionist of being ‘out of time’ and accuses: “I tell you this as an entrepreneur in the tourism sector: this year we are unable to find seasonal workers, because many take citizenship income. Therefore, they prefer to work two days in the black, thus earning what they need. Indeed, I make an appeal if someone is looking for work: we need staff and waiters, who we cannot find. For this reason, damn citizenship income which causes that work two days in black and do not want any type of contract”.
“Perhaps there is a problem with paying a little more for seasonal workers – Landini retorts – and to pay all the hours they do. This theme exists not because they have citizenship income, but in many cases why they take too little compared to what they do “.
“No, that’s not true”, Santanchè repeats several times.
“If we want to have a real discussion about it – continues Landini – let’s do it without pretending, because otherwise the discussion becomes a bit fake. If you pay workers more and give better conditions, you will find staff”.
However, he denies that seasonal workers are paid little and blurts out: “You are talking about nothing. Do you know how much they are paid? “.
Landini replies: “If we want to have a discussion, let’s deepen it in other locations, not on television jokes. And let’s also renew those contracts that have not been renewed for years”.
