Pompeii in Danger: UNESCO report
A report on the dangers to Pompeii includes the fact that once you get a job working at Pompeii, you keep it for life and you don't have to do much. Visitors to Pompeii can testify to this. Also, getting competent people--as opposed to someone's nephew--hired seems to be a problem. The report also documents the declining number of houses that are open to visitors: only 15 are open at all, and only 5 are always open. (It used to be 60.) Ironically, the most damage occurs to houses that are closed.
