Tuscany’s labor market is slowing, exemplifying concerns that have arisen from estimates made in recent months: the impact of war in Europe, rising energy prices and logistical difficulties attributed to the Covid pandemic are beginning to affect employment. The data is included in the study by the Florence Chamber of Commerce Research Office which, in the Excelsior report, depicted the metropolitan area’s job market in November. compared to October Expat worker flows are two thousand years lower and back to the same level as in 2019Employment moved from 9,600 in October to 7,600. Moreover, projections for the second quarter from November to January indicate that companies will hire just over 23,000, about 8,000 less than in the same period last year.
