Business is booming for the University of Gelato

Sweet work if you can get it

You’ve got that right. And Carpigiani Gelato University in Italy is attracting a lot of refugees from the economic crisis, who want to make a new start in what appears to be quite a lucrative business — at least in Europe, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Student Moreno Barbieri, a roofer in Italy, told the newspaper:

“I work hard, usually 12 or 13 hours a day, but the pay isn’t worth the hard life. I’m hoping I’ll have a better life as a gelatiere.”
