Less precarious work, minimum wage coming - Di Maio after meeting 'riders'

4 June 2018 (Milan) - The new Labour and Industry Minister, Di Maio, met food-delivery riders in his first official engagement since being sworn in and described them as a ’symbol of an abandoned generation that does not have protection and sometimes doesn’t even have a contract’. Di Maio, who is also leader of the 5-Star Movement (M5S) and the deputy premier in the new government, said it was necessary to give these workers ’insurance and a decent minimum wage’. ’I wanted to meet them because we are starting on a path with a model of less precarious, more decent labour that has a minimum hourly wage’, he said.
