Resolution adopted by the European Parliament in October 2019 relating to the employment and social policies of the Eurozone.
The Resolution calls for legislative initiatives setting up a minimum wage for the European Union (EU) and a fund to grant loans to national unemployment insurance schemes, to be activated in the event of major economic shocks. It also calls for an EU Child Guarantee to support tackling child poverty, while calling for the fight against youth unemployment and long-term unemployment to be prioritised. It urges the European Union to set up a coordinated initiative to strengthen social rights for digital platform workers and the European Commission to set out a Directive on pay transparency.
