Marghera, the "drug of Hitler" to support the grueling shifts: so the workers at 6 euros per hour do not lose their jobs

Drugging to be able to work, to support the grueling shifts in the construction sites of large ships a Porto Marghera. Because at stake, with a starvation salary, there is also the possibility of maintaining the place and thus obtaining the renewal of the residence permit. This is the insight that emerges from the investigation by the Finance Guard of Mestre on Fincantieri and on the massive exploitation of the workers (mostly Bengalis) who are hired by subcontracting companies, and by a second investigation by the carabinieri which a month ago led to a maxi-seizure of Yaba pads. They call it the "drug of Hitler", because during the Second World War the soldiers of the Third Reich made massive use of it, so that they could sustain any effort. But even the "madness drug", because it creates serious damage to the nervous system, generates anxiety and depression, with the risk of reaching suicide. Yaba is a synthetic drug based on methamphetamine which induces a state of hyper-excitement, at the same time reducing the feeling of fatigue and hunger. It is the Bengalis engaged in shipbuilding who make massive use of them in Marghera.

Before the searches of the Yellow Flames in the offices of companies that work for Fincantieri (and in the homes of one dozen executives suspected of corruption among private individuals), it was the carabinieri who discovered that the Bengali community in Veneto makes great use of that drug. At the beginning of October the soldiers of the Investigative Unit of Venice, in collaboration with those of the station of Rome Quadraro, they had arrested a wholesaler (Loftor Mohammad, a 40-year-old Bengali) and seized 31,000 tablets, the largest amount of this drug ever found in Italy. They were hidden in the background of a suitcase and had a retail value of 200 thousand euros. The operation "Yaba Smuggler" of the carabinieri (with six suspects for drug dealing) is now welded with "Global Pay" of Finance. Let's see why. Loftor is accused of having supplied drugs to a fellow countryman who lives in Mestre and who then sold the red, light or dark tablets, engraved with the letters "R" or "WY". The price ranges from 4 to 10 euros per tablet.

Among the main users there are the Bengalis who constitute the second most populous community in Venice after the one living in Rome. The carabinieri questioned dozens of people who admitted that they had bought the tablets. Among them there are numerous workers employed at Fincantieri. And here is what is more than a suspect. Workers who earn an average of 5-6 euros per hour to build large ships and furnishing them are subjected to exhausting rhythms, as shown by the Finance investigation. To meet delivery times, they are forced to work far beyond working hours, without having to pay overtime. Indeed, based on the "global pay" system, they see average earnings decrease.

Two of the pushers identified by the carabinieri worked for Pz Company Srl in Via Cappuccina, in Mestre, a company that has subcontracts in Fincantieri. But there are other precedents. A year ago, in December 2018, a shipbuilding worker was blocked: in the backpack he had 800 tablets of Yaba purchased by the Roman wholesaler. Previously a Bengali courier had been stopped at the "Marco Polo" airport in Venice.

The Venetian prosecutor Giorgio Gava, in the decree of seizure of the operation "Global pay" wrote: "It emerged that the workers of multiple companies that have carried out grinding and carpentry operations at the Marghera plant of Fincantieri, have paid their workers in total terms differ from pay slips, without any recognition of paid leave, overtime, festive work and sick leave ".
