The measure was already foreseen in the first version of the government’s proposal, in the context of the medium-term agreement to improve incomes, wages and competitiveness, which was presented on September 28, but with a lower value (1,268 euros) .
The new proposal presented today to the social partners provides for the “establishment of an annual program to support the permanent recruitment of qualified young people with a salary equal to or higher than EUR 1,320, salary level for the admission of a graduate in the general career of senior technician (level 16 of the Single Remuneration Table)”.
The measure fits in with the objective of attracting young people and retaining talent.
