Rome, June 3 - The mafia does a better job running
businesses and protecting its workers than do many legitimate
employers, a union official complained Monday.
The CGIL union claims that too many businesses seized from
mafia figures and sold to legitimate entrepreneurs are failing -
and that is jeopardizing the jobs of their workers.
It claims that the number of confiscated businesses has
jumped by 70% since the beginning of the economic crisis in
2008.
And as many as 90% of those fail, claims the CGIL, which
met with government officials about the problem.
Serena Sorrentino, federal secretary of the CGIL, says that
100,000 signatures have been collected on a petition calling on
government to do more to help confiscated businesses remain
afloat and thus, protect workers' jobs.
It notes that the regions with the highest number of seized
companies include Sicily, accounting for 36%, Campania, with
20%, Lombardy, 13%, and Lazio, with 8%.
The businesses are mostly in the service sector, at 55% of
former mafia companies; and construction, representing 27%.
