Naddeo continues: “The economic aspect is not the only element that makes working in the PA attractive. In the public sector there is a job stability that has no equal, as it is not subject to cyclical crises or other external factors to collective redundancies and staff reductions. In addition, the PA guarantees respect for all workers’ rights, fully protected by national collective agreements. In private, this is not always the case.”

For tax agencies it rises to 35,300 euros, while for local entities it stands at 29,900 euros.
