Minimum income schemes are not mere tools to get people on the labour market
Addressing the ministers at this occasion, Social Platform called on all member states to put in place accessible adequate minimum income schemes as the basis for high level social protection across the life span and as economic stabilisers. To achieve a level playing field across Europe, we asked for the adoption of an EU framework directive on adequate minimum income schemes, establishing common principles, definitions of adequacy, and methods. We also pointed out how putting in place such schemes would contribute to the delivery of the Europe 2020 poverty reduction target.
