Almost three-quarters of new jobs in Italy only temporary

Labour ministry stats show employment more precarious

(ANSA) - Rome, November 28 - Fully 70% of new jobs in Italy in the third quarter of this year were filled by temporary contracts, according to labour ministry statistics released Friday that highlighted the precariousness of the employment picture. That marked an increase of 1.8% compared with the same July through September period in 2013, the ministry said. Its report came at the same time as new data showing a jump in the national unemployment rate in October to 13.2% and an increase in youth joblessness to 43.3%.
