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.
1 In the Commission’s view, are the study’s conclusions correct?
2 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?
3 Is it planning to carry out or commission a study of that kind?
