Perspectives on social policy

In a radio interview with WDR5, Lucas Guttenberg, deputy director of the Jacques Delors Institute Berlin, comments on Emmanuel Macron’s call for EU reforms and the response of CDU chairman Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. Although Kramp-Karrenbauer and Macron agree on some points, their opinions on a common social policy differ. Macron’s proposals regarding the European minimum wage must be considered differentiated, says Guttenberg. Macron proposes creating a uniform set of rules for European minimum wages. This would ensure that the respective minimum wage would be adapted to the economic situation in the concerned EU country.
