The president of Confindustria, in a parliamentary hearing, specified that he had defined the budget law as “reasonable to the extent that it concentrates the few resources available on the reduction of the contribution wedge for 2024”. But he also clarified: “I’m not interested in the lower Ires if I hire, because we don’t have employment problems at the moment”, indeed “we have a lack of profiles”
Considering the Budget Law and the Fiscal Delegation together, “we are on the very rare occasion where an expansionary maneuver takes away resources from the production system because it takes away the Ace”, 4.6 billion, and “we are in the negative by a billion”. This was said by the president of Confindustria, Carlo Bonomi, in a parliamentary hearing on the budget law. Of the 30 billion in extensive measures of the Budget, almost 55% are dedicated to workers and only 9.4% to businesses, he explains further, underlining: “For us, it is no longer possible to postpone opening a path favorable to growth”.
“Lack of growth strategy”
Bonomi also specified that he defined the budget law as “reasonable to the extent that it concentrates the few resources available on the reduction of the contribution wedge for 2024”. On the other hand, however, he considers it “incomplete given the substantial absence of support for private investments and a strategy aimed at growth and competitiveness”.
“I’m not interested in relief for those who hire”
“I’m not interested in the minor Ires if I hire, because we don’t have employment problems at the moment”, indeed “we have a lack of profiles, 800 thousand profiles are missing”, Bonomi said again. As for hiring incentives, “I believe it is not correct to use public resources, as an entrepreneur, because creating jobs and hiring is my job. I don’t like taking public money to do my job”.
The sum of the contribution wedge cut is positive
However, there are some positive sides. “At this moment” for Bonomi “we need to support low-income families”, who judges the sum of the contribution wedge cut and the revision of Irpef rates as “positive”. “We estimate that between 9 thousand and 35 thousand euros of income there will be a beneficial effect of between 560 euros and 1400 euros”, he underlines.
