Rome, June 27 - The labor minister on Thursday said
a newly launched jobs package could reduce unemployment for
those aged 18-29 by up to 2%.
Currently 25% of the Italian workforce in that age bracket
is without work.
Speaking to Italian radio, Enrico Giovannini said 2% could
also be shaved off the number of Italy's growing 'NEET'
population, those 15-to-29-year-olds who are not in education,
employment or training.
According to the national statistics agency Istat, Italy
has Europe's highest NEET proportion.
Premier Enrico Letta's cabinet on Wednesday approved a
decree featuring a 1.5-billion-euro package that includes
measures that focus on people under 30, with tax breaks for
firms that take on workers aged 18-29 with permanent full-time
contracts.
The package will affect 200,000 people, according to
Giovannini.
