Emergency income: one thousand euros to 3 million people in the hypothesis of the Minister of Labor Catalfo

Three billion to give the emergency income about 3 million people. The hypothesis announced by Nunzia Catalfo, Minister of Labor, which would result in the overall disbursement of approx One thousand Euro each (in one or two tranches) will have to overcome the political scrutiny before being included in the menu of the decree expected in mid-April, following that for the liquidity of companies arriving probably between tomorrow and Monday.

The new form of support for categories not reached by the other channels, basically people who live on the margins of the world of work (even with a black job) is strongly pushed by the Five Star Movement but must be integrated into the overall intervention to the study of the government. Even taking into account the fact that the instrument of citizenship income already exists, an instrument that in this phase of substantial stoppage also of employment offices plays essentially a welfare role.

The need to ensure a form of protection for all also responds to a concern for the overall stability of the social fabric which is destined to increase with the continuation of the obligations to close businesses and stay at home. The same concern that provisionally led to the start of the shopping voucher mechanism. And even emergency income could be paid by the Municipalities, as an alternative to the INPS channel. However, the concerns of the Ministry of Economy remain on the dimensions of the intervention, which would like to limit the cost for the state coffers to around one billion, with an amount of the benefit that does not exceed that of the citizenship income (around € 500 per month for family).

According to Istat, a certain worsening of the economic conditions of the families was already visible in the last part of the year, a period which however appears to be very far away. Household disposable income had lost 0.2% in the fourth quarter, marking a turnaround from the growth that had characterized the rest of the year. Purchasing power had an even more negative trend, with a fall of 0.4%, essentially caused by the slight rise in inflation in December. At the same time, the propensity to save had also decreased, while the tax burden had risen to 51.2 percent in the last part of the year, corresponding to the tax payments made at the end of November.

The April decree, as confirmed by the Minister of Economy Gualtieri, will contain other very important chapters, in continuity with that already adopted on March 17. The first is of course the postponement of tax deadlines, which are currently suspended until May for companies up to two million in turnover and for those of the sectors most directly affected by tourism. Then the sums paid as compensation for the failure to work for self-employed, professionals, collaborators and other categories will be confirmed. The amount of 600 euros recognized for the month of March should be increased to 800 euros, but with the inclusion of some form of conditionality linked, for example, to the extent of the loss suffered, which will have to be certified in some way; provided that this does not create other problems in the actual payment of the subsidy.

And then there will be social refinancers to refinance. The same Nunzia Catalfo yesterday in an interview with Class Cnbc quantified the overall value of the measure at around 15 billion. “The package of measures for work will weigh several billion – said the head of Labor – the figure, compared to the previous decree, could have doubled, if not even more, because the closure of activities has widened so it is clear that to protect all workers and all businesses we are making this forecast of an important expansion and strengthening of social safety nets ». On the issue of layoffs, however, there is also the denunciation of labor consultants, who complain that in ten Regions it is still not possible to present those of Cig in derogation due to delays of the same local authorities.

Among the other measures that will be confirmed is the suspension of layoffs: the moratorium already decided, always as specified by Nunzia Catalfo, should also be extended to those who were hired on a date after February 23, that is, the one in which the first emergency measures have been taken.
