Italy: Giorgia Meloni’s government to bring in 452,000 foreign workers by 2025 – (France 2)
Giorgia Meloni’s government has decided to bring 452,000 foreign workers into Italy by 2025. A decision taken at a time when many sectors are in crisis.
Giorgia Meloni and her government, elected on a promise to fight immigration, have announced that they will return 452,000 foreign workers to Italy by 2025. The Italian far-right leader has promised to curb immigration at every meeting. A year after he was elected, his government approved this legal immigration quota, the largest in twelve years.
The aging of the Italian population
Sectors concerned are particularly agriculture, food and fisheries. The trade is in tension with the inability to find workers due to the aging of the Italian population. For a Siena restaurateur who voted for Georgia Meloni, the shift in her immigration policy makes sense: “There are a lot of foreign workers here, and if they work there is no problem in welcoming them.”
