On Tuesday, the bill to introduce the so-called “minimum salary”, i.e. a minimum compensation threshold established by law and equal for all workers regardless of the job they perform. The proposal was presented last July jointly by almost all the opposition parties: in the months that have passed it has become the only political issue capable of put you in difficulty the government of Giorgia Meloni, which has repeatedly extended the discussion time on the proposal by making it go through various phases of analysis and opinions.

The last step was the one in the Labor commission, the parliamentary commission competent on the topic, where it was finally significantly modified compared to the initial proposal of the opposition. Above all, the threshold of 9 euros gross per hour which had been set as the minimum wage, and which was considered the basis of the entire proposal, was eliminated from that text. The text sent back to the chamber by the Labor commission was therefore strongly contested by the opposition, who decided to remove signatures from the bill, which was now judged to be too different from their intentions.

The reaction of Giuseppe Conte, leader of the 5 Star Movement, was the most dramatic among those of the politicians who said they wanted to boycott the majority’s new proposal. The speech ended with Conte tearing up the papers with the text of the bill written on it.

In addition to Conte, the other representatives of the parties that had initially signed it also said that they would remove their signatures from the proposal: the leader of the Democratic Party, Elly Schlein, the leader of the Italian Left, Nicola Fratoianni, the leader of the Action group, Matteo Richetti, and the leader of +Europa, Riccardo Magi.

In the final vote in the Chamber the amended billwhich effectively excludes the minimum wage wanted by the opposition, was approved with the votes of the majority: the text will now pass to the Senate.
