Cut golden pensions says Di Maio (3)

And raise minimum pensions to 780 euros a month

(ANSA) - Rome, July 4 - The government is set to cut golden pensions, those above 5,000 euros a month, and raise minimum pensions to 780 euros, Labour and Industry Minister Luigi Di Maio said Wednesday. He said this would come after the elimination of vitalizi parliamentary pensions, in a week's time.
    "Vitalizi are a first step, and the next one are privileged pensions," he said.
    "If you have a high pension that comes from a lifetime's work, on the other hand, it is right".
    Di Maio said No to "pensions unconnected to contributions".
