However some of the traditional stmctural problems of Italy's lahour market have not yet been solved. Of these problems, the most serious are the failure to ensure an efficient transition from school to work for the younger generations, the poor leve1 of labour market participation among women, the early retirement of older workers, the widespread presence of undeclared work, and the magnitude of existing geographical imbaIances and intemal segmentation, sources of iniquity as well as ineffrciency.
