COVID-19 has had ‘dramatic effect on jobs in south’

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 23 – Gian Carlo Blangiardo, the president
of national statistics agency ISTAT, said Tuesday that the
COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the already weak
labour market of Italy’s less wealth southern regions.
    “One of the dramatic effects of these past months is seen in a
decrease in employment, which is particularly evident in
southern Italy, a lower level of participation on the labour
market,” Blangiardo told the “Sud- Progetti per Ripartire” event
on South Italy’ development.
    “The south’s gap in the (employment rate) is about 15 points
with respect to the national average and the gap in terms of
overall participation on the labour market is another 15 points”
(ANSA).
