Reducing inequalities with a special focus on in-work poverty (A9-0006/2021 - Özlem Demirel)

Written explanations of vote

I vote in favour of this report because I am convinced that action needs to be taken urgently in the EU to tackle the rise of poverty and in particular in-work poverty. With an economic crisis unfolding of which the social impact will be far-reaching, the EU and its Member States need to adopt an anti-poverty strategy with concrete poverty reduction targets by 2030, combat tax evasion and tax fraud, take action to end homelessness among other actions.
I don't support the statement that prostitution is something that needs to be combatted and is under all circumstances a form of violence and exploitation. Decrimininalising prostitution and ending repressive measures, together with a legal framework recognising the rights of sex workers as service providers or employees would benefit the well-being and safety of sex-workers and would significantly diminish their vulnerability to exploitation

On EP NEWSHUB

De Europese Commissie komt met een progressief voorstel om de genderloonkloof aan te pakken! 💪 Hard nodig: Vrouwen verdienen in Europa gemiddeld 14% minder dan mannen. Succes aan @GreensEFA collega @Kira_MPH die hoofdonderhandelaar is namens het EP. https://t.co/rFflh7pXd6 

De Commissie presenteert haar plan voor een sociaal Europa. Ik ben blij dat er opnieuw doelstellingen komen op sociaal vlak, maar in deze crisistijd hebben we meer ambitie en concretere voorstellen nodig! https://t.co/3Noi0WdbCh
