The migration phenomenon, and the consequent work integration of foreigners in Puglia, continues to be one of the crucial points in the context of an adequate territorial reception.
The "black" or irregular work constitutes, at national and local level, a profound social scourge, closely related to the migration phenomenon.
In this regard, Puglia was the first Italian region to legislate a policy to combat irregular work, representing with regional law n. 28 of the 26 October 2006, "Contrast discipline to non-regular work", the only case of direct legislation.
During the conference "The government's policies to combat undeclared work", held in Bari on July 3 2007, Rosa Rinaldi, Undersecretary of State at the Ministry of Labor, referring to the reality of Puglia, had announced the massive presence of illegal workers, exploited and underpaid. The only way to facilitate regular work and, therefore, integration, has been an adequate training of the aspiring worker, an effective orientation and insertion in the legal channels of occupational research.
According to the Caritas statistical dossier, in reference to the immigration and work relationship, the data provided by INAIL are important, identifying a marked work integration of the Albanian community (18,2%) in the city of Bari, reaching peaks of 26% in the immediate province.
The picture becomes clearer with the analysis of data regarding the sector of activity: 9.400 are the registrations in the agricultural sector (20%), followed by the construction sector with 4.980 registrations and a clear prevalence in the province of Bari (41,8 %) and the hotel and restaurant sector, mainly concentrated in the provinces of Bari and Lecce.
But the number of foreigners who actually live in Puglia is much higher, demonstrating that only a small percentage can access regular employment.
The reasons for this social problem are manifold: first of all the prejudice that leads to the belief that foreigners are less able and lacking in adequate training and, secondly, the actual lack of associations or bodies that deal with guidance and training of foreigners, in order to guarantee them the acquisition of certain competences, necessary for entry into the world of work. A suitable preparation and training is the only real instrument for combating irregular work and exploitation, which for years has characterized and penalized the flow migration in Italy. It is necessary to recognize in foreigners a resource for our territory and, in this direction, to facilitate its correct integration into the social fabric.
The Mediter Association, starting from a careful reflection of the statistical data and a study of the phenomenon on the territory, intends to make its own contribution, recognizing an adequate professional training as the only resolution to the problem.
The association avails itself of the experience in the field of job mission training, for years a point of reference and meeting between companies and the unemployed, pursuing both the objective of orientation and training, and the creation of a direct network between foreign worker and local companies.
In this regard, the association Mediter, in collaboration with Missione Lavoro and Sei Ugl, organizes the 12 June 2010, in Bari, a work orientation seminar, aimed at Albanian citizens in Puglia, with the aim of perfecting certain skills that allow to enter the world of work in a conscious and effective manner.
The topics of the seminar, lasting about 2 hours, will focus on the drafting of a correct and understandable CV, on ways to present themselves to companies and on selection interviews and on the rights of foreign workers.
During the seminar all useful addresses will be provided to present candidates to local companies and employment agencies.
The seminars are free and open to all Albanians without distinction of sex, age or educational qualification. Other Information:
