Renzi vows to slash civil service manager salaries by 500mn (ANSA) - Rome, March 13 - Premier Matteo Renzi said Thursday the government will cut a total of 500 million euros from the salaries of managers in Italy's civil service. "If you're a manager in the civil service, is it right to make more than the president of the republic? No, and there are many managers who do," said Renzi on television talk show Porta a Porta.

"The average among Italian managers (in the civil service) is out of proportion to what managers make in England and Germany".
