The PES Social Europe Network chaired by French MEP Pervenche Berès discussed the Commission’s proposal for a European pillar of social rights with the aim to ensure this new initiative will actually balance economic freedoms with social rights in the European Union. The meeting took place in Brussels yesterday afternoon.
With its progressive reforms, the PES promotes a real alternative to the politics of cuts and lowest social standards.
Gathering measures ranging from decent wages, quality public services, fair taxation, investment in education and clean technology, the PES programme for progressive reforms shapes a new social and economic model that supports growth and jobs, favours environmental, economic and social sustainability and reduces inequalities.
With the Youth Guarantee, we have shown that another kind of reforms is possible, we are now ready to push for more.
