It was supposed to be a maneuver entirely aimed at tackling the economic and energy crisis, and at helping the weakest sections of the population. Instead, between the lines of the Budget law there are one-off increases in the salaries of public employees, who become "top" for magistrates and managers of independent authorities.

According to what was reported by Il Sole 24 Ore on newsstands today, the administrative top management of the Authorities will collect around 1,980 euros gross more, which becomes 1,812 for those who wear the toga. The paycheck of those who hold a top position in the Presidency of the Council of Ministers will increase by 75 euros, for a total of 976.5 per year (always gross). A little less will take over the heads of the other central public administrations.

Further down the scale of increases are all the other civil servants: including teachers, with an extra 32.6 euros per month.

The gap with the top positions arises from the linear mechanism established by the text of the maneuver, which links the increases to the current amount of payrolls, "cleaned" of salaries based on results and positions.

This piece of the budget law is worth around one billion, plus 800 million to be donated by public bodies and universities.
