Rome, June 21 - Over half a million workers are on
benefits in recession-hit Italy after being temporarily laid off
by their companies, Italy's biggest trade-union confederation,
the left-wing GCIL, said on Friday.
The CGIL said 524,000 workers were claiming the CIG benefit
for people who have been temporarily laid off. This led to a
collective loss of around 1.7 billion euros in salaries for the
first five months of the year, it said.
The union said almost another half a million more people
are on CIG benefits to support their income after having their
hours cut by their firms.
This is in addition to close to three million people, 12%
of the working population, who are unemployed as Italy struggles
to emerge from its longest recession in over 20 years.
"These numbers are terrifying," said the CGIL. "They are
the sign of a very deep crisis".
