Camusso rebuts Padoan on pensions and life expectancy

'Different for an investment banker than a steelworker'

(ANSA) - Milan, September 21 - CGIL trade union chief Susanna Camusso on Monday rebutted remarks made on pension reform by Economy Minister Pier Carlo Padoan.
    Padoan told La Repubblica newspaper in an interview Saturday that "pensions must be linked to length of time on the job and life expectancy".
    However reforming pensions based on revised life expectancy figures doesn't account for differences between white- and blue-collar jobs, Camusso said.
    "If life expectancy is the sole criteria...then let's calculate it based on lines of work, and we will find there are profound differences between an investment banker and a steelworker," she said.
