Farm jobs for educated youth, women resist crisis

(ANSA) - Rome, October 18 - Italy's farming sector is offering jobs to educated young people and women unable to find other work in the recession, farming association Cia said Thursday. The number of workers on farms rose by 6.2% this year, even as Italian unemployment surged amid the euro debt crisis, it said. One in three new workers have "high education qualifications," Cia said. Some 40% of the work force is now female and more than a third of farms are run by women.
