The uprising in January 2010 Rosarno
Research IRES CGIL Rosarno choose as a paradigm of exploitation of foreigners in the local economy. On this idea, the study explores the territories that have more similarities with the case of the revolt of Africans against the 'Ndrangheta and the slavery of January 2010. "In the provinces involved in the survey clearly showed that over the years, a growing presence of immigrants, whether seasonal or permanent, was offset by a rise in racism and xenophobia - the report says - In particular , according to what is observed, the immigrants were perceived in different ways over the years. " On the one hand, and their presence has always been considered essential to the survival of local economies and small producers and entrepreneurs.
Migrant workers, in fact, represent a large amount of cheap labor, used for blackmail and highly specialized operations shortly. Moreover, the fact that often these workers are not in possession of a valid residence permit, deprives them of any form of protection and the contractual guarantee. But, often, even in cases where they are EU citizens, as Romanians, Poles and Bulgarians, working conditions and wages do not improve at all. These workers do not replace the Italian ones, because they perform jobs that residents do not always want to do. Therefore, according to research, "the presence of immigrants and has always been tolerated, and in many cases has also been promoted, just so necessary to the local economy", for example in the construction industry, "with wages and unfair contractual conditions." The presence of these workers began to become "uncomfortable" and less and less appreciated by locals and by the same institutions when they are no longer considered the functional performance of the local economy. This happened especially with the economic and financial crisis.
