Adequate minimum wages for workers

On October 28, the European Commission proposed a Directive to ensure workers in the Union are protected by adequate minimum wages allowing for decent living wherever they work.

Commission President von der Leyen promised to present a legal instrument to ensure that workers in the European Union have a fair minimum wage structure which would in return have a social positive impact, brining about wider economic benefits.

The proposal provides for improved enforcement and monitoring of the minimum wage protection established in each Member State. Compliance and effective enforcement is essential for workers to benefit from actual access to minimum wage protection, and for businesses to be protected against unfair competition.
