Building strong social Europe

Minimum EU wage idea met with stark opposition

The Commission presented last Wednesday a communication on building a strong social Europe for just transitions, the EU press service reported. It sets out how social policy will help deliver on the challenges and opportunities of today, proposing action at EU level for the months to come, and seeking feedback on further action at all levels in the field of employment and social rights. The Commission also launched the first phase consultation on the issue of fair minimum wages in the EU, which has already caused an uproar.
