Italy’s Fornero Pushes Adoption of Labor Reform, Giornale Says

April 15, 2012

Italy’s Labor Minister Elsa Fornero warned that if Parliament doesn’t pass a labor reform bill, the government risks having to “go home,” il Giornale reported, citing comments she made at a conference in Reggio Calabria yesterday.

“We have decided on one thing: we will go to Parliament and if the reform doesn’t pass we will go home,” Fornero said according to the publication. She added the reform plan isn’t “untouchable” and changes to some parts may be made.

Prime Minister Mario Monti’s bill to overhaul Italy’s labor market was presented to the Senate April 5. Both houses of parliament will review the measure in the coming weeks and can offer amendments.
