Extracts from the press conference by László Andor on the Report "Employment and Social developments in Europe 2011"

2,282 views

On 15 December 2011, László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, held a press conference on the first annual review of Employment and Social Developments in Europe (ESDE) published by the European Commission. The review underlines that a mix of employment and social policies is necessary to ensure a long-term job-rich recovery in the current climate of fiscal consolidation and bleak economic outlook. Its findings show how the economic crisis has aggravated Europe's structural weaknesses like income inequality and the disappearance of medium-paid jobs, especially in manufacturing and construction. Poverty remains high with 115 million Europeans (23 % of the EU population) at risk of poverty or social exclusion in 2010. The review also analyses labour mobility within Europe, reviews active ageing policies and draws attention to the problem of in-work poverty.
