However, on November 9, Economy Minister Giancarlo Giorgetti signed a decree that should lead to a 7.3% increase in pension benefits from January 1. However, now the correction could be reduced for checks above the specified threshold. It is clear that this measure has already provoked protests from trade unions and the opposition.

Among the measures to be bring resources to the treasury the budget law is likely to include reducing the revaluation of higher pensions. Where higher means they cost more four times the minimum pension. Thus, it may seem that we are talking about the devil knows what privileged people, in reality, the measure will affect pensioners who receive 2100 Euro gross per monthabout 1700 euros net. For all these people about 3 million recipients, there will be an inflation adjustment, but to a limited extent, ie. well below the roughly 12% that the cost of living is worth today. In essence, this means that their pension payments will decrease as they rise, but less than the prices of goods and services. Last November 9, in addition, the Minister of Economy Giancarlo Giorgetti he signed a decree that should cause the next 1st of January increase in pension payments 7.3%. However, now the correction could be reduced for checks above the specified threshold. It is clear that this measure has already provoked protests from trade unions and the opposition.

“If the rumors about lowering the increase in pensions above a certain threshold turn out to be true, this will be a very bad start for this government. In addition, there is talk of an intervention in gross pensions (which do not yet have a full revaluation), for example can’t be rich and which are the result of many years of work and contributions.” To state this, expressing strong concern and bewilderment, Carmelo Barbagallo general secretary of UIL Pensioners. “From what we know, the Meloni government is working to freeze the revaluation of pensions. In particular, they want to hit who have worked for more than 40 years, paying all dues”says Secretary General of Spi-Cgil Ivan Pedretti. “The government intends to get money by reducing the revaluation of pensions? It would be completely unacceptable to further freeze the adjustment of benefits to millions of pensioners to finance other measures. We cannot talk about interventions that take into account social suffering if we then eliminate the possibility of restoring the purchasing power eroded by inflation.” Like this Deborah Serracchianiteam leader Pd in ​​the ward.
