Immigrant workers are seldom loved by the local population: after all, they increase competition on the labor market.
This is unlikely to change in Italy even after recent statistics revealed that a sizable part of the few new jobs created by a suffering economy are offered by enterprises run by immigrants: in the commerce sector, one new hiring in four was made by an immigrant employer.
Of course, immigrants mainly hire other immigrants. However, if their enterprises thrive, this will benefit Italian professionals (accountants and labor consultants) as well as the State Treasury.
The fact that so many new jobs created by immigrants are detected by the statistics and therefore regularly registered disprove the cliche that enterprises run by immigrants are always clandestine.
