EU sources -Benchmarking report: austerity policy fails to deliver -March 24, 2014

The Benchmarking Working Europe 2014 report published by the ETUC and the ETUI concludes that nearly five years into the Europe 2020 strategy, the EU’s focus on austerity and deregulation is failing to deliver. Growth remains fragile, unemployment has surged to record heights, poverty has risen to unacceptable levels, inequality has grown and social rights are being undermined. The report looks at the most important statistics in eight key areas: the EU’s macroeconomic situation, labour market developments, inequality and poverty, deregulation of labour law, wages and collective bargaining, health and safety at work, worker participation rights and the impact of austerity on the green agenda.
