Salvini: unmotivated and ideological strike 

- "Thanks to the common sense of Cisl, Ugl and their members. By not supporting an unmotivated and ideological strike against the government, they will not complicate the day for millions of workers. Problems are faced and solved with dialogue , not with the ideological clash".

"At the same time there is no intervention on extra profits, and this is madness, in a country where profits and extra profits have increased, cash is raised on basic income, pensions, workers' wages", he adds, "this It's a very specific choice."
