Ik heb gestemd!

Voor hogere minimumlonen en voor meer mensen onder de bescherming van een cao.

Nu wachten op het resultaat 🤞

Today we vote in #EPlenary on minimum wages.
 
Make the difference for millions of workers. Put a PLUS on minimum wages.

Hogere minimumlonen, daarover stemt het Europees Parlement donderdag. Daarover gaat mijn rapport.

In Nederland kan dat goed uitpakken voor werknemers! En met hen voor miljoenen anderen in heel Europa.

Fingers crossed dat we het halen! 🤞

"It is our political challenge that we do not up with any Directive on Minimum Wages, but with a Directive that has a real impact.

It must close the gaps, improve wages and create upward convergence throughout Europe!"

"We have set the level of ambition on 70% collective bargaining coverage, but why not 80% as in the Parliament position?
Member States need to come up with an action plan to strengthen collective bargaining when they do not reach this."

"When talking about low-wage earners, we should not forget that the majority of low-wage earners are women.

They are doing the essential jobs and they get the least paid. This Directive is a crucial message to them: your work has an important value!"

"Bulgarian workers are not 7 times less productive than workers from Luxembourg.

We need to close not only the economic gaps, but also the social gaps within and between Member States. We need upward social convergence in Europe."

"In previous decades, the minimum wage was portrayed as a 'job-killer'. Incorrectly so. Germany was the clearest case what positive effects a minimum wage has on the economy. All over the world, countries turn to it."

"When Member States have a low level of collective bargaining, a concrete action plan needs to guarantee that workers can join a union without fear, and can bargain collectively.
This report by the European Parliament is a game changer!"

"The Biden administration has the public support changing for Federal public procurement and making it work for workers, as well as to higher the Federal minimum wage to $15 per hour.
We must pass these reforms!"

"The Gillets Jaune in France was really about respect: 'Give us a decent salary!'
That should not make policy makers in Europe uneasy.

A decent minimum wage is a sign of respect and resolves the discontent in many European countries."

"I look at trade unions particularly. The link with collective bargaining has to be made in the Directive. We should strengthen this. It guarantees decent wage levels throughout."

"Minimum wages for families, for parents with one or more children, is inadequate in most European countries.
Only together at EU level, we can ensure that all Member States raise the minimum wages. The minimum wage is a crucial instrument!"

"There is a strong indirect relation between in-poverty and minimum wages. In most European countries, gross minimum wages are only adequate for singles."

There is more trust in Europe, than a decade ago. We have an alternative to the crisis.
We can deliver, when we get this Directive on Minimum Wages through!"

You are right @PedroMarquesMEP, the fact that millions of people are in poverty in Europe is indeed a failure of the market.

Time to set this straight, with the Directive on Adequate Minimum Wages. We need to change the game together!

Agnes Jongerius (PvdA) di 16 nov 2021, 13:12

The Parliament position on the Directive of Adequate Minimum Wages resembles a break with the past:

We are now ensuring that statutory minimum wages must be adequate, fair, and provide for a decent standard of living!

The tide is turning, and we are fighting to increase statutory minimum wages, as a threshold of decency, and to enhance collective bargaining in Europe.

2,2 miljoen Nederlanders werken voor een minimumloon en lopen het risico om aan het einde van de maand niet rond te komen.

Dit zijn lang niet allemaal jongeren die in de supermarkt die na school wat zakgeld willen bijverdienen

Waar het minimumloon in 1969 in NL nog 59% van het gemiddelde loon bedroeg, is dat vandaag nog slecht 40% (!)

Daarnaast wordt het leven alsmaar duurder, maar groeien de minimumlonen niet voldoende mee.

Tijd om die scheefgroei recht te trekken!

In coronajaar 2021 groeide het vermogen van Elon Musk, CEO van Tesla, tot 188 miljard dollar. Dat is een stijging van maar liefst 548 procent!

Daarentegen stegen de minimumlonen van onze kraamverzorgers, vakkenvullers en pakketbezorgers slechts met 1,89%.

Jeff Bezos bedankt zijn werknemers voor zijn ruimtereis🚀 Ze fatsoenlijk betalen, doet hij niet. Met woorden van dank koop je helaas niet veel.

Een Amazon-medewerker die voor het minimumloon werkt, moet wel héél lang sparen voor een reis naar de ruimte.
