Forever a precarious worker #precaripersempre

precari_per_sempre.jpg

The silence of the "left wing” trade unions and parties greeting Renzie’s action that solidifies the existence of precarious workers and in fact eliminates the guarantees for employees is the umpteenth piece of evidence that workers in Italy no longer have representation. Vendola said "Renzi has shown himself to be the master of the moment. And by now, I feel that I am not of the moment [that’s been the case for some time now - editor]“. With Renzie, the concept of "modern slaves" brought in by Treu and Biagi with the blessing of the then Minister of Labour, Maroni, has now become structural. It’s a defining step in obliterating the concept of the worker as employee and the social battles of last century. All slaves. The enthusiasm with which this action was welcomed by the so called representatives of the workers can be compared to turkeys having a party on Thanksgiving Day in the USA. From Renzo’s chickens in Manzoni’s novel we are moving on to Renzie’s chickens that peck at each other just before their necks are wrung.
Renzie’s labour reform sets out "the employment contract up to three years with the possibility of renewal without a gap and without the need for explanations“. Basically precarious workers get their contract renewed every three years at the discretion of the employer, without the need to specify the project that the employee will be working on and with no gap between the end of one contract and the beginning of the next. It’s putting a short-term contract on a par with a permanent contract, so in a while the latter will disappear. Everyone will be a precarious worker. There’ll no longer be employees with the rights they currently have. It’s an idea suggested by “Europe of the banks” and taken up with enthusiasm by Renzie in order to offload the costs of the crisis on the reduction in the cost of labour. Because in the end that’s what this is all about. Bartering the reduction of the spread with the reduction of the Italian people into semi slavery. While Renzie is destroying one of the pillars of Italian society, "Work”, while waiting for the next ones, namely Health and Education, the trade unions are exultant for the 80 euro (only promised) and the 85,000 public employees who have been sent home. Tell the triple alliance of the big trade unions and General Secretary Landini, that they represent the workers, not the banks. Perhaps they have had so much contact with the banks that they have started to get confused.

Is anyone else concerned at all about this fool -Carlo Cottarelli - and his sociopathic approach to pensions and pensioners? The man is truly insane, not to mention dangerous. I think Renzi is too stupid or dishonest (or both) to realise it, but someone has to stop this Cottarelli (who incidentally earns € 25,000 a month!) before he destroys the last bit of the Italian welfare system. Bloody psycho!

It should be: forever a TEMPORARY worker, not a precarious worker ...really! Precarious = Dangerously lacking in security or stability, subject to chance or unknown conditions, based on uncertain, unwarranted, or unproved premises.
There is, however, some truth in the article, Maggie Morthatcher introduced the system in the UK and in the US it has always been so. Fonzi is only following suit.
