The economic crisis has affected Italians much more heavily than young foreigners.
In seven years, in fact, one million Italians and 200mila under 30 have lost their jobs, while their peers without citizenship have even earned 92 thousand new contracts.
And in general, as far as employment is concerned, immigrants seem to get along better than the natives, especially because they are content with less qualified (and probably underpaid) jobs.
This is the summary of the semiannual note on the labor market of immigrants in Italy published today by the Ministry of Labor. "Looking at the last year, the occupation of foreigners, although central in many sectors, has been affected by the crisis, albeit in less pronounced forms by Italians".
