(en) Sicilia Libertaria: shit in the cage (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 16 Mar 2023 08:40:41 +0200

The right hand throws the stone and then waits to see the effect it has. Thus the minister of public destruction, the ignorant Valditara, a man of clerical-fascism, that of the positive value of humiliation, launched one last one in the matter of wage cages. In a meeting with the principals' association, he expressed the idea, by no means original, of restoring wage cages, that is, wage differentiation based on the cost of living in the different regions. An idea that equals the projects of differentiated autonomy and discrimination of the South with respect to the rich regions of the North (rich to the detriment of the others...).
The cost-of-living parameter is a pretext for carrying out a new anti-Southern lunge; it is known, in fact, that in the southern regions it is not only the cost of living that is lower, but there are also many parameters that are very low, starting with that of public investment, infrastructure, services, health , school, employment. This involves greater expenses to be able to get treatment or education, to live a decent life; and it also involves a flow of money to the North for health care, to keep children in university, and we could go on. Not to mention how low are the environmental safety parameters of many industries imposed on the southern territories by multinational "Padan capitalism".

The story of wage cages is old; invented immediately after the war, they went into operation in 1954 and allowed for wage discrimination approaching 30%. It was the great mobilizations of 1968-69 that decreed its end, legally sanctioned in 1972.

This flashback... tricolor should not be underestimated. An offensive against the South by the government gang is underway (see differentiated autonomy), which deserves an effective response. They throw stones; those stones must be collected and used well.
