Trimming top wages 'unconstitutional'

Italian court rejects cuts to top government salaries

(ANSA) - Rome, October 11 - Italy's Constitutional Court on Thursday struck down a government plan to cut salaries to top civil servants and judges. In its decision, the court said that the decree to trim salaries in the 2011-2012 budget was unconstitutional. The ruling means the cash-strapped government will not be able to trim the pay packages for employees as planned. The government of Premier Mario Monti had intended to cutsalaries that exceeded 90,000 euros. A 5% cut would have been applied to the salaries of employees earning more than 90,000 euros and up to 150,000 euros. Those earning more than 150,000 euros would have taken a 10% hit.
