No paycheck bonus for Italian workers, labor minister says (ANSA) - Rome, March 25 - Labour Minister Giuliano Poletti on Tuesday said that Italian employees will not receive a bonus on their paychecks as part of a package of labor reforms, but they should expect fewer taxes. Speaking to Italy's Radio Capital, Poletti said reports to the contrary were based on media speculation. However workers could still look forward to a previously announced government plan to cut personal income taxes by more than 1,000 euros per year, or about 80 euros monthly, directly affecting the paychecks of workers earning less than 1,500 euros per month.

The measure would cover 10 million people.
