Amendment to help compensate Italy's pensionless retirees


Rome, November 13 - Italy's House budget committee
on Tuesday approved an amendment that withholds inflation
adjustments to the stipends of lifetime elected officials in
2014 to help compensate retirees bereft of their pensions.
The money will be used towards aiding Italy's so-called
'esodati' or 'exiled', who are workers that opted to take early
retirement in order to help companies downsize amid the euro
crisis but have so far received no benefits.
So far the government has approved
Earlier this year state pensions agency INPS calculated the
number of uncompensated pensioners at about 390,000, though
the figure has been disputed by Labor Minister Elsa Fornero who
has so far earmarked funds for just over 100,000.
The House budget committee on Tuesday approved an amendment
to fund another 10,130 people.
The amendments were tacked onto the so-called Stability
Law, a budget-reform bill currently under discussion in Italian
