Italian court rejects cuts to top government salaries
Trimming top wages 'unconstitutional'11 October, 14:33
The ruling means the cash-strapped government will not be able to trim the pay packages for employees as planned.
The government of Premier Mario Monti had intended to cutsalaries that exceeded 90,000 euros.
A 5% cut would have been applied to the salaries of employees earning more than 90,000 euros and up to 150,000 euros.
Those earning more than 150,000 euros would have taken a 10% hit.
