DiEM25's Labour, Employment and Social Protection Policy Paper now in development – Contribute!

The main problems affecting the lives of a very large number of Europeans are under-employment, precarity, lack of prospects, uncertainty about their future, and fear of unemployment, together with low purchasing power. In fact, almost a quarter of the population of the European Union is at risk of poverty. In this context, many Europeans express their distrust of the Union, or even straight out reject it. They have the feeling – often rightly so – that the social regressions implemented in the recent years come from political choices made at European level, notably the “flexibilisation” of the labour market. This resentment is skilfully exploited by the anti-European right and the extreme right, which have recently discovered a social sensitivity and have invested this domain abandoned by the so-called “government” left.
If we want to create a political dynamics strong enough to simultaneously oppose austerity policies and nationalist regressions, and if we want to be able to implement our strategy of constructive disobedience, it is essential that we can propose European citizens and workers an alternative programme that puts social justice and the reduction of inequality at the heart of our new project for Europe.
The Labour, Employment and Social Protection pillar of our Progressive Agenda for Europe aims to offer to European citizens an ambitious, concrete and credible alternative project as well as European social policies aimed at promoting social justice, reducing inequalities and protecting workers and the precariat. It will be an important tool for our campaigns.
