It is clear from what the Commission President and the commissioners have said that the Commission is working towards the establishment of a European minimum wage.

According to a study published in 2019 under the auspices of the renowned CEPR (1) , centralised and inflexible minimum wage policies can have harmful repercussions for employment and average income levels.

In the Commission’s view, are the study’s conclusions correct?

Does the Commission have access to a study on the expected impact of centrally-defined minimum wages on overall employment, wage inequalities, the employment of low-skilled workers and those with disabilities, and new employers on Member State and regional job markets?

Is it planning to carry out or commission a study of that kind?
