<nettime> New economy workers' strike in Milan

Today the Virgilio.it workers are on strike in front of the Matrix 
offices, in Milan (Italy). Matrix is the company that owns 
Virgilio.it. Matrix recently decided to cut 100 employees out of 300. 
It's the first public strike done by new economy workers in Italy. 
The workers calls themselves 'Tute Arancioni' ('Orange suits', orange 
is the corporate color of Virgilio.it), and now they have a website: 
http://web.tiscali.it/tutearancioni/index.html. It'd be the start of 
a different political consciousness among the many new economy 
workers here. Vinvenzo Vita, a member of the DS (a left party), told 
that the trade unions must be aware of these new work protests.
