A Fiom union worker hands out leaflets outside the Mirafiori factory in Turin March 21, 2012. The small firms that cluster around Fiat's Mirafiori factory, now working only around three days a month, have struggled for years with falling orders, as the domestic market declined in 2011 to its lowest level since 1996. But manufacturers dependent on Italy's Detroit see some hope in moves by unelected, technocrat Prime Minister Mario Monti to overhaul old labour laws. Outside Italy, Monti's efforts to reform the economy are viewed by some as a test of Europe's willingness to learn from its debt crisis. Picture taken March 21, 2012.
