The European Monitoring Centre on Change (EMCC) is an information resource established to promote an understanding of changes in the world of work, employment and restructuring. Its work is supported by a Network of Eurofound Correspondents across all EU Member States and Norway.
Well-functioning labour markets are a prerequisite for making full use of the job creation potential of the economy as it emerges from the financial and economic crisis.
Eurofound monitors and analyses the implications of structural change in the economy for Europe’s labour markets and employment.
Featured - Concept and practice of a living wage
The concept of a living wage - a measure of income calculated to afford an employee a basic but socially acceptable standard of living - has gained traction in recent years in particular in a number of English-speaking countries. It is based on a detailed costing of all of the goods and services required to have a basic, reasonable standard of living in a particular place and a particular time. It responds at least in part to the perceived inadequacy of the legal minimum wage in providing a liveable income to many in working households. In its European versions, the publicised 2018 living wage rates are in a range of 15-35% higher than the legal minimum wage. A recently published Eurofound report – Concept and practice of a living wage – outlines the historical and political background of the living wage idea as well as a detailed account of its practical implementation in five countries.
