Italy is Paralyzed by Varsal Strike
Trade unions believe that the reforms proposed by the government of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi will not allow italy to lead italy out of recession and create new jobs. They are outraged by the government's intention to restrict the right to strike, facilitate the dismissal of employees and reduce public spending.
Italy is currently suffering from a huge state budget deficit. Unemployment is at an all-time high. Among young people, it exceeds 40 percent. Renzi assured that he would not allow the trade unions to lead him off the path of reform.
