Rome, May 22 - Over half of Italians polled do not feel that migrants living in the country are biting into the slim job market, but maintain that Italians should be chosen first over foreigners for employment openings, statistics agency Istat said on Wednesday. Some 61.4% of those surveyed in Istat's 2013 annual report said that "immigrants are necessary to do work that Italians do not want to do," while 62.9% do not believe that foreigners living in the country are "taking work away". While 86.7% of those polled believe that everyone should have the right to live in "any country they choose," 50% of those asked said that in the case of a national employment shortage, Italians should be the first ones picked over foreigners.
