The European Commission’s proposal for a directive on adequate minimum wages has sparked controversy among EU countries and social partners alike across Europe.
The proposal develops the principles of the European pillar of social rights, aiming to improve the working and living conditions of millions of workers in the EU.
Today 1 in 5 Europeans are at risk of poverty or social exclusion, while 10% of workers are considered working poor.
On 21 May, we will discuss the issue of the Adequate minimum wages directive, with Commissioner Nicolas Schmit, European Parliament rapporteurs on adequate minimum wages Agnes Jongerius and Dennis Radtke, European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) workers’ group President Oliver Röpke, and EESC member and co-rapporteur of the opinion on the Adequate minimum wages directive Cinzia Del Rio.
