Unemployed man commits suicide, remembered at union meeting


Naples, March 20 - An unemployed Naples man who
committed suicide Wednesday morning was remembered with a minute
of silence at a national CISL union meeting.
"A worker has taken his life. This is news that we never
want to hear," CISL head Raffaele Bonanni said.
Francesco Assaiante, 50, who lost his job in a physical
therapy center, was unemployed for over a year.
Regional CISL representative Salvatore Altieri linked
Assiante's suicide to his economic struggles.
"We are terribly sorry, especially in front of a scenario
that continues to repeat itself in Italy, when people faced with
the fear of not being able to uphold their obligations, pay
rent, send their children to school, just throw in the towel,"
Bonnani said.
Italy has seen a steady rise in the rate of suicides over
the past year amid its economic crisis.
The deaths have often involved indebted small-business
owners and the unemployed, as well as people struggling with
steeply rising tax bills.
