On employment moderate prospects for improvement

Slowdown phase of economic growth in Italy. This is what emerges from the monthly note of the ISTAT (Italian Statistical Institute). “The indicator continues to record declines, signaling the continuation of the current phase of containment of the pace of economic growth”. Positive signs come from work: despite the drop recorded in June, the positive trend in the employment rate is confirmed in the second quarter of 2018 (58.7%, 0.4 percentage points higher than the previous quarter). In the second quarter, the increase in the employment rate involved all people aged over 25 years.
