Urgent call on member states to top up European Youth Guarantee
MEPs want the EU to set more money aside to offer young people training or a job, in times of soaring youth unemployment.
In a debate on Monday evening, MEPs will quiz Council and Commission on how the implementation of the Youth Guarantee is going so far in member states; some might insist that the scheme must become obligatory in order for it to work.
Parliament will call, again, for a legal framework to ban unpaid internships, traineeships and apprenticeships in the EU.
In a resolution to be put to the vote on Thursday, MEPs will demand that member states mobilise more money for the Youth Guarantee for the period 2021-2027, by means of an increased ESF+, in line with earlier calls made by the European Parliament.
Procedure: Questions for oral answers, non-legislative resolution
Debate: Monday, 5 October
Vote: Thursday, 8 October
