In Italy “there is the problem of a real tax reform, I read that they are discussing a crazy tax delegation, which is not what we need because the taxman in Italy means fighting tax evasion and really introducing progressivity where everyone pays on the basis of what they have, ”said the leader of the CGIL, Maurizio Landini, on the sidelines of the CGIL demonstration in Piazza del Popolo.
«The Ciampi pact was a pact for wage moderation to enter Europe. Now we are in Europe and we need to raise wages ”and, for this reason,“ today is not the time for generic agreements but for concrete measures ”. To make this clear is the general secretary of the CGIL speaking on the employment and wage emergency. “Do not accompany pacts and wage moderation agreements,” he warns.
“Today, people, especially workers and retirees, don’t make it to the end of the month. It is absolutely necessary to take measures, even extraordinary ones: for example, it is necessary to tax the extra profits of companies at 100% and not at 25% », says Landini. In addition, he continued, “I think that financial income cannot pay less taxes than income from work and retirement income, these are things that can be done immediately to find resources to redistribute.”
