Inequality 'impoverishes' everyone, says Confindustria

Morelli says inequality inefficient for economic growth

Inequality 'impoverishes' everyone, says Confindustria

Santa Margherita Ligure, June 7 - Italian business needs the labour provided by immigrants as well as greater certainty in the laws surrounding newcomers to the country, Jacopo Morelli of the youth wing of Confindustria said Friday. In his comments, Morelli - head of the young employers' branch of influential industrial confederation - waded into a major debate in Italy over possible liberalization of immigration laws. New immigrants should be treated more equally - as should women and any other group that has been marginalized, said Morelli. Moves in this direction should not be feared but welcome as good for business and the economy, he added. "An unequal country is an inefficient country," he said, adding that inequality "impoverishes everyone".
