Meloni set to abolish Italy’s welfare state

Italy’s new prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, has unveiled her first economic initiatives, with a budget of 21 billion euros. The Italian government will no longer hand out free handouts to those who simply refuse to work. This should not cause controversy.

First, anyone who is eligible for the allowance must actually reside in Italy. Those who are able to work will have eight months to find a job before their free salary runs out. Alternatively, if someone refuses to work, they will be excluded from receiving benefits. By next year, 5-star citizen wages will be eliminated as many people abuse the system simply by not wanting to work. They are also reviewing the pension system, but it is too late to save the pension funds.

Italy’s first female prime minister is also urging couples to start families amid the birth crisis. Women can take six months of maternity leave and still receive 80% of their salary. Meloni has reduced taxes on baby products and feminine hygiene products. Couples will receive a 50 percent increase in the “baby bonus” and families with more than three children will receive more incentives. Italy needs future taxpayers.

Everyone cheered when America named its first woman vice president, but Kamala Harris did nothing for women who still pay the pink tax and are not eligible for maternity leave. It’s surprising how controversial the move has become, with newspapers calling Meloni a fascist dictator for preventing working taxpayers from paying for the unemployed of their choice.
