The hospital employee in Italy had not been fired for 15 years, but continued to receive his salary
It is often said with humor that jobs in the public sector are simple and you can even stay up all day without working. A civil servant of the hospital sector in Italy has confirmed beyond any doubt this stereotype, as he did not appear at work for 15 years and despite that he continued to receive the salary which during this period has gone to 538 thousand euros.
The 67-year-old resident of the city of Catanzaro in Calabria has not been going to work since 2005 and according to the Italian media with some forgery of documents and blackmail against other employees he has managed not to go to work and the leaders of the institution have not even noticed this fact.
The real scandal is the fact that the director of the hospital himself has admitted that he did not intend to check whether the employees go to the administration or not.
The incident occurs just a few weeks after another similar incident was recorded in Spain where a local government employee had been out of work for 8 years and his absence was only noticed when he was going to be decorated because he had "served" for a long time.
