"The majority scuttled our bill on the statutory minimum wage. It did so without even having the courage to vote against it, but through an amendment approved late last night that transforms it into a delegated law for the Government. An amendment that resurrects the "wage cages", i.e. salaries differentiated between North and South.
After the pantomime of the CNEL, here is Giorgia Meloni's amazing recipe: no to a minimum threshold that finally puts an end to contracts of 4 or 5 hours an hour that harm dignity and yes to even more disadvantaged and poor workers if they live and work in the South.
Faced with such a scenario, we do not intend to give up.
We have already tabled an amendment to the Budget Law to introduce the minimum wage and we will do the same when this proposal comes to the Chamber of Deputies. There, the whole country will be able to see what these fake 'patriots' are made of, who bow to the big banking groups but are merciless workers struggling with starvation wages." M5S leader Giuseppe Conte writes on social media
