Here’s how much payrolls will rise starting in January as a result of the cut in labor costs. The maneuver includes the cut of the tax wedge.
The budget law has received the go-ahead in the Chamber. The text approved by the Meloni government has been approved. Among the cornerstones of the 35 billion euro economic package is the cut in the tax wedge. The paychecks of millions of workers will be bigger.
