The adoption of the European Pillar of Social Rights and its effect on the future of young people
Throughout 2016 the European Commission has been consulting with national authorities, social partners, civil society and citizens on the content of the European Pillar of Social Rights, which among others will have a positive effect on how young people are perceived in the labor market. Acting further on a more social Europe, the European Parliament voted and adopted a report on the 19th of January, which not only will update the outdated labor law and security systems and bring them closer to the digital age that we live in, but will also set young people at the center of the European social model. Specifically, the report supports a solid Youth Guarantee, fitting learning and training content and suitable working conditions for internships and traineeships. By adopting this, the European Parliament recognizes the difficulty young people come against during the transition from the education to the work field, the discrimination they are facing when it comes to unemployment schemes and the low salaries they receive.
