Mrs. Robert Nard Frankfurt, Germany (NC) -- Italian priests who provide pas- toral care for their compatriots working in West Germany have charged that these workers are being exploited, particularly with regard to housing. The priests have appealed to their "German friends," the gov- ernment and churches for action in solving the "extremely diffi- cult, urgent problem" of the Ital- ian workers in this country. The priests claimed that the workers are exposed to "infamous explo- itation" in the matter of housing. Of the 1.5 million foreign work- ers employed in West Germany, 400,000 are Italians. They are cared for by 105 Italian priests. i RK SHOPPING Located in the center of Holy Souls and Good Counsel Parishes ... Every service at your fingertips... Plenty FREE Parking ...
