Ensuring adequate and fair wages is high on the European political agenda, especially in the context of the rising living costs since 2021. The fall in real wages can lead to social risks, particularly for low-wage earners, and has prompted renewed discussion on the living wage in some markets and an increase in the statutory minimum wage in others.
Following up on its strategic issue paper published in April 2023, the World Employment Confederation-Europe organised a webinar on 29 June to discuss with EU stakeholders how to ensure adequate and fair wages, as well as decent working conditions. As documented in the WEC-Europe paper, the agency work sector is offering adequate and fair wages and is ensuring social protection, notably thanks to innovative systems designed and deployed through social dialogue.
