Press release: Cause for serious concern for the poorest in Europe: EAPN responds to the conclusions of the EPSCO Council

While welcoming the renewed commitment by EU Ministers of Employment and Social Affairs to make a decisive impact on social exclusion and poverty, EAPN is seriously concerned about the introduction of the confusing concept of “minimum resources” instead of the well understood concept of “minimum income” in the conclusions of the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council which took place on 22 February 2007.
