Working, Yet Poor

Project description

Rising poverty among workers

There is a worrying trend today spreading across Europe that challenges the goals proclaimed by the European Pillar of Social Rights. This is the growing number of working people who live below the poverty line or at risk of falling. It is a situation that hinders EU workers to fully enjoy the benefits EU citizenship offers. The EU-funded WorkYP project will conduct research in seven Member States that present significant diversity in geographical position, law and social systems. It will identify the reasons such a situation has emerged. It will also draft proposals for EU and national legislators. A further aim of this project is to prevent social dumping and help EU citizens to recover confidence in public governance.
