Wages too heavily taxed in Italy, says labor minister

(ANSA) - Rome, August 23 - Wages are too heavily taxed in Italy, Labour Minister Elsa Fornero said on Thursday. The minister said that "the first aim of a labor minister should be to take responsibility (to discuss income tax), as well as balance the accounts". Italy's has a 55% income tax burden and Premier Mario Monti's emergency government of non-political technocrats has raised taxes as part of its efforts to restore health to the public finances and haul the country out of the centre of the eurozone crisis.
