“We would have liked and hope that there is the possibility to work seriously on the reconfiguration of public spending. We spend 1 trillion every year, with 4/5 percent reconfiguration we would find the necessary resources to cut the tax wedge,” he said. the President of Confindustria, on the sidelines of the Federmeccanica Assembly in Rome
“It is particular that in this country when we talk about work we are talking about pensions. Then, if we are on the subject, and I am talking about old age ones, we already have 9 exceptions to management. At the INPS level, there are 30 committees that manage the pension system without talking about private funds. So, I think that if we want to talk seriously we need a reform of the system and not go ahead with quotas. On the other hand, the Fornero law has seen safeguards and I believe that for this reason with its rules no one has retired. ” Thus the president of Confindustria, Carlo Bonomi, on the sidelines of the Federmeccanica assembly referring to the first meeting with the Minister of Labor which took place yesterday. (PENSIONS, THE GOVERNMENT’S IDEA OF QUOTA 41)
Review of public expenditure
“It is good that all the resources are put on energy as we had requested. The announcement that has been made on gas and in wanting to keep the bar straight on the public finance accounts is also positive. We would have liked and hope that there is the possibility to work seriously on the reconfiguration of public spending. We spend 1 trillion every year, with 4/5 percent of reconfiguration we would find the necessary resources to cut the tax wedge “, said Bonomi. “There is no tax wedge cut and we have seen that we want to make a spending rewiev that can bring about 4 billion in three years, but this is not what we are hoping for. We want a serious review of public spending, 4 – 5% out of over one trillion euro, should allow us to have those resources to make a serious and structural cut in the tax wedge. Our proposal is 16 billion, under 35 thousand euros of income, two thirds in favor of employees, one third in favor of companies, means putting 1200 euros more in your pocket for each employee “, thus concluded the president of Confindustria in his speech.
