Kontroverzen prestop nogometnega superzvezdnika

Nogomet kot metafora našega časa: nogometni superzvezdnik Cristiano Ronaldo je pred skorajšnjim prestopom v Juventus, ki seveda ne bo zastonj, ob tem pa so se oglasili tudi zaposleni pri italijanskem Fiatu, katerega vodstvo (premožna družina Agnelli) ima med drugim v lasti tudi slavni nogometni klub iz Torina.

Fiat factory workers in Italy can think of a few things they’d rather see their owner spend $130 million on than Cristiano Ronaldo.

A Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV union in the south of the country called for a strike to protest the purchase of star player by Juventus Football Club SpA, which like the carmaker is owned by the Agnelli family. That’s money that could have been used for job-boosting investments like making better cars, the union said.

“It’s unacceptable that, while FCA and CNHI workers continue to make huge economic sacrifices, the company spends hundreds of millions of euros on the purchase of a player,” union USB Lavoro Privato said in a statement. It’s calling for a strike the Melfi plant in southern Italy between 10 p.m. on July 15 and 6 p.m. on July 17.
