Renzi reasoning on labour 'extravagant' says Bersani -update

'The party will stand by him, but the facts won't'

(ANSA) - Rome, September 29 - Democratic Party (PD) dissenter Pier Luigi Bersani slammed Premier Matteo Renzi's labour reform as "extravagant". Renzi says "we have few employed and too many unemployed, so let's get rid of Article 18 (of the 1970 Workers Statute). Germany has high employment, and they have Article 18," Bersani told Radio Deejay in an interview. The PD likely won't push the premier out, but reality will, Bersani added. "Loyalty to the firm usually prevails, but the facts will give (Renzi) a rude awakening," Bersani warned.
