“The workers without vaccine could be 3-3.5 million, out of 23 million workers, about 13% -15%. If the state decides, as desirable, to pay tampons to enter the company, for these workers, it would be useful about 1 billion euros until December 2021 “. Beppe Grillo proposes it in a post published on his blog entitled ‘Su green pass serves pacification’.
“I have always had a passion for numbers and so, as a good accountant, in recent days I have taken a pen and paper and jotted down some notes that I want to share with you – we read – To date, there are about 41 million Italians with complete vaccination, which corresponds to 80% of the population over 12. One of the best data in Europe, which should therefore suggest that the no vax population in Italy is very limited. Of the 19 million missing about 6 are under 12 years old, and others About 6 are between 12 and 19 years old, and therefore are mostly high school students and non-workers. It is estimated that there are about 2.5 million over-60s without vaccines, mainly concentrated in the 60-69 years of age. half are retired and less than 1 million workers. So we should have 19-12-1 = about 6 million of working age. Not all of these are workers: they could be unemployed, inactive and not employed, at least 2/3, then 2.5-3 million workers without vaccines could be 3-3.5 million, out of 23 million workers, about 13% -15%. If the state decided, as desirable, to pay the tampons to enter the company, for these workers, about 1 billion euros would be needed until December 2021 “.
The founder of the M5s suggests, among other things, a mechanism through an “exchange of data between Sogei, which holds the data on green passes, and INPS, which holds the tax codes of the workers and the companies where they work. The cross between these two dataset, with the authorization of the guarantor, would allow INPS to report in the company drawer, the workers without a Green pass to swab, and it should be foreseen in the company drawer a recognition of a bonus in the form of contribution relief, so that the cost of the tampon is only advanced by the company but paid as an adjustment by the INPS, as usually happens for the ordinary layoffs on the payments of company contributions “.
For Grillo, “this mechanism, which would not invade privacy except within the strictly necessary limits, would have the double advantage: one, of being fast, avoiding queues and checks at company turnstiles, during which workers would certainly see violated their their spaces of freedom, and two, to be free for workers, and to identify the cost and cover it with a special bonus, paid by the state. The debate is open “.
