In May 2020 EAPN issued a Position Paper on Adequate Income. It presents and updates EAPN’s priorities, proposals and demands in view of adequate income, covering both adequate minimum income (MI) and fair minimum wages (MW), including living wages, largely building upon earlier policy work by EAPN and the EMIN Network.
This summary document presents key points to support the advocacy work of EAPN members. It exclusively deals with adequate minimum income.
It covers what Minimum Income benefits and schemes are and:
- what they should acieve;
- how they should be designed;
- why we need binding EU-level instruments;
- EAPN’s main demands for Member States and EU Institutions, and
- what the way forward is.
