Report says young willing to sacrifice to work

Some half of jobless Italian youth would sweep streets

Rome, May 21 - Some 49% of young unemployed Italians looking for work would be willing to take jobs as street sweepers, a report by the Coldiretti farmers' association said on Tuesday. The survey 'Youth in Crisis', compiled together with the Trieste-based SWG polling agency, found that the percentage dropped for those already employed, yet 32% still said that they would accept a job as a street cleaner and 34% would work for as couriers. More than four out of 10 unemployed young people (43%) would be willing to accept a job paying 500 Euros per month, while 39% would be willing to work overtime without extra compensation. "The analysis shows a strong spirit of sacrifice among the country's youth that leads them to give up basic workers' rights," Coldiretti President Sergio Marini said. "This is something that we cannot allow in a civil society like Italy," Marini said.
