From Rdc to Mine: the weak point of the reform is employability
The criteria chosen by the government to determine who is fit for work or not appear paradoxical. And they are in contrast not only with common sense, but also with European policies
Between press rumors and unofficial drafts, the contours of the decree that will put an end to the citizen's income to replace it with the "Measure for active inclusion" (Mia) now seem defined. Among the main novelties of the provision that the government is preparing to launch, there is one that will concern all potential beneficiaries, regardless of the path (of social inclusion or job activation) to which they will be directed. It's about the reduction of the value of the ISEE, which will be lowered to 7,200 euros from the 9,360 euros foreseen today for the Citizenship Income. A change aimed - evidently - at reducing the overall number of beneficiaries and, therefore, at easing the expenditure allocated to the new subsidy.
