Asked about the Voluntary Social Service being studied by the government, the executive secretary of the Ministry of Labor and Welfare, Bruno Bianco, did not provide details and only replied that the format of the program and the amounts involved will be announced by the new minister of ministry, Onyx Lorenzoni.
“It won’t be anything complex. We are going to create something simple that does not bureaucracy and generates employment for young people in public environments as well”, he limited himself to replying. “Programs are usually launched by provisional measure, due to the urgency of getting into operation, but Minister Onyx will decide”, he added.
Bianco repeated that the Productive Inclusion and Qualification Incentive Bonuses (BIP and BIQ) will have a public and a private counterpart. The secretary recalled that the government is seeking an agreement with Sistema S to use the resources in the program aimed at younger workers. “The worker will be available for half a day, of 4 hours, and the remuneration will be paid in part by the employer and in part by the government. The objective is to reach an amount of half the minimum wage”, said Bianco.
For the secretary, the S System can improve. He pointed out that the government praises and criticizes the system managed by sectoral confederations. “We are looking for a consensus and an agreement will certainly be made with system S, hand in hand with the system. But I have to be frank, the government understands that this is part of the mission of Sistema S”, he said. “Onyx has a conciliatory profile and knowledge to reach an agreement with Sistema S”, he assessed.
Bianco also replied that the re-creation of the ministry without the absorption of Dataprev should not harm Social Security’s work in any way. “We are Dataprev’s customers and there will be no discontinuity,” he said, without answering whether the maintenance of the state-owned company in the structure of the Ministry of Economy is related to the possible privatization of the company. “Dataprev provides services to various bodies, such as the Ministry of Citizenship in emergency assistance and the special secretariat for digital government of the Economy,” he added.
