Italian govt passes job-crisis decree

Rome, June 26 - Premier Enrico Letta's cabinet on Wednesday gave the green light to a decree featuring a package of measures to tackle Italy's jobs crisis. The package pays particular attention to under-30s, with tax breaks for firms that take on people aged 15-29 on permanent full-time contracts. Unemployment in recession-hit Italy has reached a record high of 12% and one in four young people aged 15-24 are jobless. The package is intended to be just part of a series of measures to fight unemployment, ahead of this week's European Union summit, which will also focus on this problem.
