According to OECD’s statistics recently issued, at the end of the first quarter of 2009 Italy had 7.4% of unemployed workers. This figure is expected to grow steadily until the end of 2010, according to the OECD itself, the Italian Trade Unions and the industrialists association.

This means many companies closed and many with workers on redundancy payments, not counted as unemployed.

Last week the House of representatives (Camera) was also closed. The reason ? lack of work. Plenty of proposals for new laws are pending the exam of the Commissions but they do not move. All the work of the Government is geared towards laws tailored to protect Berlusconi from legal legitimate judicial prosecutions.

But there is a main difference between workers and MPs: the first lose jobs, and/or get much less money. The second do not work but continue to be paid full salary and benefits, and they are tens of times higher than the normal workers salary.

All animals are equal but pigs are more equal.
