Rome, 7 June 2022 – How would Italy work at 9 euros an hour if the bill on the minimum wage were to pass, under examination by the Senate Labor Commission, by the former Grillino Minister Nunzia Catalfo? Which categories of workers would benefit? And who, on the contrary, would even risk losing out?
