The agreement reached in Strasbourg must spur Italy to adopt a law on the minimum wage within the legislature

For the founder of the Five Star Movement, the agreement reached yesterday in Strasbourg on the minimum wage “is an important fact” and must “encourage Italy to adopt a law within the legislature”. The 5 Star Movement has been saying this since 2013 ″.

“It has been 9 years since the M5S presented the first minimum wage bill. Now – wrote Beppe Grillo – we need a step forward. In the Labor Committee of the Senate, the process for the approval of a law on the minimum wage has been started some time ago. The bill of the M5S, first signed by the senator Nunzia Catalfoin fact, has been used as a reference text and we are awaiting the opinions of the Ministry of Labor and the Mef ”.

The M5S proposal is clear, Grillo reiterated: “the total remuneration, the so-called Comprehensive Economic Treatment, cannot be lower than that defined by the collective agreements signed by the comparatively most representative trade unions and employers in each sector”.

Even for the minimum wage, the Minimum Economic Treatment, “cannot be below the prevailing collective agreement, but if the minimum wage is too low such as for example the 4.60 gross per hour of the collective agreement of trust services, in in that case there is a threshold of dignity that the M5S has identified as 9 euros gross per hour ”.

“Basically – continues the founder of the Movement -, if the bill of the M5S were approved and the minimum wage was introduced by law, what would happen in Italy would be simply this: collective agreements would always continue to set the minimum hourly wages, but if the indicated hourly wage was lower than the minimum threshold of 9 euros gross – as indicated in the M5S bill – then and only then would the minimum wage come into play, and therefore the minimum wage of 9 euros would be applied gross hour, established by law “.

The bill of the 5 Star Movement defines a minimum threshold of wage dignity below which not to go down, strengthens collective bargaining, establishing the criteria for identifying the so-called leader contracts, i.e. those signed by the comparatively more representative trade unions and employers, contrasts the wage dumping and unfair competition and provides for the tax exemption of increases in contract renewals.

Grillo: “If 5 million poor workers live in our country, it is a problem that affects everyone”

“If 5 million poor workers live in our country – continues Grillo – it is a problem that affects everyone. Low wages affect the purchasing power of families, limit consumption, have an impact on the internal demand for goods and services, therefore on consumption, but also on production, with negative effects for businesses and more generally for our economy . Approving a law on the minimum wage means restoring dignity to millions of young and old workers and contributing to the restart of the country “.
