Globalist Meloni caves to employer demands for migrant workers

ER Editor: From everything we’ve read on beefing up immigration within Europe to fill jobs over the past few years, employers can end up with a substantial number of their workforce who educationally and culturally can’t fit in, even at factory-level work. This sounds like an excuse on Meloni’s part, ‘responding to employer needs’. Meloni, as we’ve pointed out before, has a solid background with the Aspen Institute. She’s no populist rebel.


Italy’s Giorgia Meloni opens door to more workers from outside the EU

Prime minister accused of hypocrisy over plan to fill labour gaps while cracking down on irregular migrants 


Italy’s rightwing coalition plans to sharply increase the number of foreign workers from outside the EU while continuing to crack down on irregular migrants crossing the Mediterranean.

Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s government this week said it would issue 425,000 work permits to non-EU nationals between this year and 2025, which Rome said was part of its plan to promote legal immigration to fill gaps in the labour market.

The announcement followed repeated complaints from employers in various industries — including construction and tourism — about their acute difficulties in finding workers, as Italy’s economy rebounds from the pandemic shock.

The Bank of Italy has also warned that a serious shortage of skilled workers, including in construction and IT, was threatening Italy’s ability to carry out its ambitious €200bn EU-funded post-pandemic recovery plan.

Under its new increased quota system, Rome plans to gradually increase the number of new worker permits granted yearly, reaching 165,000 in 2025, while also expanding the categories of jobs for which foreign workers from outside the EU will be eligible.

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Italy granted fewer than 31,000 work permits a year to migrant workers from outside the EU. This year, Rome plans to grant an additional 40,000 permits to the 82,705 already in the works.
