In the maneuver for 2023 enters a new round of decontributions with the aim of enticing businesses – in a year that will at best see the economy stagnate – to continue to assume. “The more you hire, the less you pay,” she chanted the prime minister Giorgia Meloni at the press conference, taking up the slogan of the electoral campaign and explaining that the contributions paid by those who hire “young people under 35, womenrecipients of Basic income” provided that the company actually expands the workforce (“this does not apply to those who fire someone and hire someone else”) or convert forward contracts in stable relationships. These interventions, however, are far from new: in all cases they are measures borrowed from the Conte 1 and 2 governments.
“We are waiting to see the text, but according to the announcements the incentives that the government will propose in the budget law they will track those entered in maneuver for 2021 (Conte government, ed), which provided for a two-year period of total exemption from the employer’s quota for hiring and transformations”, he explains Joseph Buscemaexpert of Employment consultant studies foundation. “That de-contribution was operational until 30 June 2022, when it expired due to lack of authorization by the Commission”. Now “we want to re-propose”, continues the expert. Also in this case, the beneficiaries will be “disadvantaged” women (unemployed for at least two years or, if over 50, for more than 12 months) ei young people under 36 who have never had a permanent job. It is not yet clear whether fixed-term contracts will also be facilitated, as happened in the last two years with the result that a large part of the public incentives – as noted by theInapp – went to feed the precarious and involuntary part-time.
In addition, the new Minister of Labor, Elvira Calderonehe said he had already notified the Commission of his intention to continue the 2023 as well South decontribution, another measure dating back to 2020 which reduces by 30% (the percentage decreases in subsequent years) the contributions due for all workers of companies with offices in the South, without age limits. Also in this case Meloni replies an intervention by Conte, whose results were certainly not brilliant in making less precarious the labor market: more than half of the 1.1 million seats created last year thanks to the incentive are complete and another 18% is seasonal.
Nor is the tax relief for those who hire beneficiaries of basic income a novelty, an intervention that should intentionally reduce the number of “employable” recipients to whom the new executive intends in 2023 remove the help after 8 months of use. “On this already the decree 4 of 2019 which established the rdc provides for an exemption from contributions without a deadline”, recalls Buscema. The relief, which is due to employers who have looked for an employee through the Anpal digital platform dedicated to the Rdc and hire him at indefinite time or in apprenticeship, is equal to difference between 18 months of rdc and those already enjoyed by the recipient before hiring. Therefore, on paper, companies already have at their disposal a potentially greater incentive than the maximum 6,000 euros that should be envisaged by the Budget law: by inserting a recipient who has received the income for 8 months, they can collect a reduction of almost 8 thousand euros.
