Italian bishops' chief calls jobs 'dwindling bread'

Genoa, April 17 - Italy's bishops' chief on Wednesday called the job market "dwindling bread" as the recession and the euro crisis wear on the population. "In these scarce and exhausting times, bread, that is work, is sensed even more as an extremely precious good, evermore threatened and in fact dwindling or lost," said Genoa Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, the president of the Italian Bishops' Conference (CEI). On Tuesday, the International Monetary Fund predicted unemployment will reach 12.0% this year, from 10.6% in 2012. "Let's not forget that it's truly difficult to go on underneath a certain level," said Bagnasco.
