Social dumping: MEPs call for fair wages and social justice for workers

Plenary Session Employment policy21-09-2016 - 09:00
 

Workers do not enjoy the same level of social protection within the EU. Faced with increased competition some businesses resort to social dumping in order to reduce their labour costs. This could lead to workers being exploited as cheap labour. During last week’s plenary session, MEPs called for this unfair practice to be ended. They also discussed measures to help reconcile work, private and family life and minimum income schemes. (Read more: Social dumping: MEPs call for fair wages and social justice for workers )
