The founder of Action: prevent work from becoming exploitation. Our prudent proposal. It foresees a long time for the adaptation of national contracts.
Senator Carlo Calenda, why do you say that the minimum wage is needed?
There is a problem of poor work. It involves about 4 million Italians who, despite having a full-time job, do not make 1,200 euros net per month. Those on which inflation has hit the hardest in the last year. The minimum wage prevents work from becoming exploitative. The 9 euros gross per hour are calculated precisely on 50% of the average wage adjusted to 17% of the 2022 inflation on low incomes. Parameters compatible with the European directive, not a random number.
Not a measure of the left, from the USSR, as Tajani said?
so much a thing from the USSR that all the OECD countries have it, from the United States to France and Germany. Tajani said something stupid. The risk that the maxim is worth for him: you never have the misfortune of receiving a higher assignment than the one you are able to carry on.
Going back to your proposal, does it not create a coverage problem for the state coffers?
Our prudent proposal. It foresees a long time for the adaptation of national contracts. And by then, in the context of the budget law, it will be possible to modulate the fund to help companies that will have an increase in the cost of labour.
He had asked Meloni to discuss it. Did he ever answer her?
Not officially yet. There is a problem that questions the Western world and we are putting forward a serious proposal. The reaction cannot be the bowl and I do not argue. And without having an alternative proposal. I hope and believe that you will want to open a dialogue.
Almost all the oppositions are together on the proposal: the embryo of an alliance?
No. We think differently about too many things. We are not ideological. We are voting for the government's tax delegation because that of Draghi, which we had shared, and the abolition of the abuse of office which was in our program. But that doesn't mean we're in the majority. The country is dying of ideological conflicts and we want to close this season.
And does the fact that Renzi is not in favor even mean anything?
The minimum wage was in our electoral program. So Renzi's position surprises us. Like the defense of Daniela Santanch. But today we are two separate parties, by his will: we have to ask him.
