An Italy that is aging and in demographic crisis will also have to deal with the consequences on the labor market. As stated in a research by the Di Vittorio-Cgil Foundation, “in twenty years the pool of potential workers will suffer a sharp decrease, -6.8 million people, while the population not of working age (under 15 and over 64 ) will record robust growth, +3.8 million people “. Furthermore, the Foundation stresses, the demographic effect also affects the official employment rate which already measures, and will increasingly only partially measure, the actual employment trend.
Immediately intervene “on working conditions, precariousness, wages and working hours” and change the immigration policies in and out, both numerically and from the point of view of people’s rights. “These are some of the interventions against the population decline and its repercussions on the labor market proposed by the Di Vittorio-Cgil Foundation. These must be accompanied by other interventions of a more structural nature. ” demographic trend of the population, many other factors including lack of conciliation policies, scarcity of services and concrete interventions in support of the birth rate, but its strong acceleration must also be analyzed with an approach different from the traditional one “, underlines the report.” worsening of health, economic and social scenarios has always played a fundamental role in people’s choices, causing particularly negative peaks birth rate. Elements of mistrust towards the future are accentuated, of which, as is well known, employment is a fundamental element. The interventions must therefore simultaneously have characteristics of immediacy and structurality “.
