'Room for pay hikes, but productivity first' says Passera

(ANSA) - Rome, September 11 - Italian Industry Minister Corrado Passera on Tuesday said there were ways to increase worker pay in Italy if productivity is boosted. "There are areas in which we could put more money in the pockets of the people," he said in a meeting with labor union leaders. "But without increases in productivity, raising salaries will be impossible," he added. The talks were centered around the likely shutdown of a Sardinian Alcoa aluminum plant, which Monday sparked violent clashes between demonstrators and police in Rome.
