Thriving, not surviving: quality jobs and the future of work | Plenary 3

Rising cost-of-living driven by out of control corporate super-profits, excessive working hours with low pay that barely carries people to the end of the month with no time for family and community-- this is what millions of Europeans are putting up with in their daily struggle for a dignified life.*

In this plenary, we will discuss how we can achieve quality jobs with work-life balance, to ensure wages that keep up with the rising cost-of-living, to reduce our carbon footprint and a reduction of worktime to allow people to have a life outside of work, and to ensure wages that keep up with the rising cost-of-living. Let’s make sure that the massive job creation potential of the green deal leads to more equality, better work and a better life and a fair society.
