Florence, May 9 - Italian House Speaker Laura
Boldrini spoke up in defence of labor rights and young people at
a conference devoted to the state of the European Union on
Thursday.
"We must reinforce, not empty, the European social model
with its emphasis on protecting, not undoing, those in need, and
on safeguarding the rights of workers," Boldrini said.
She went on to call for reforming labor laws that allow for
the current glut of temporary job contracts available to the
country's youth, who suffer from 38% unemployment according to
the Italian statistics agency Istat.
"We must respond to the effects of austerity measures with
political change before it's too late," she said.
"The south of Europe, my country Italy as well as Greece,
Spain and Portugal, needs more welfare and not less in order to
counter the effects of the crisis.
"If we don't take these steps, the social fabric of Europe
is at risk and our youth will be considered the lost
generation".
