EU sources- European parliament assesses role of the Troika -January 13, 2014

In a public hearing the draft report of the European Parliament on the role and operations of the Troika was discussed. The report speaks about an unacceptable level of youth unemployment in the Member States under assistance programmes (Greece, Cyprus, Portugal and Ireland) and deplores that since 2008 the income distribution inequality has grown above average in the four countries and that cuts in social benefits and rising unemployment are raising poverty levels. The MEP’s call for the involvement of social partners in the design and implementation of adjustment programmes, current and future.
