European Economy – Minimum wage and politics

I often wonder what will happen in the coming years with all of the unbalanced economic activity in the European Union. We have so much to think of moving forward, and we are not alone with North America having similar issues. The welfare minister mentioned that disabled people should be paid less than minimum wage. We have this kind of ongoing politically sensitive topics continually coming to the forefront in both Europe and North America as the fights for minimum wage increases goes on. Many of the jobs and pay that disabled persons are performing are supposed to help them move into regular employment and there are training programs with this intention. It’s interesting we keep hearing about companies taking advantage of marginalized groups at the expense of their monthly wages.

Many of these people end up using money loans, like Ferratum UK, which helps provide financial assistance to people when times are tough.

I wonder if we will ever make universal headway into these sort of labour disputes, or will it all be pushed overseas where law is less enforceable. One can only hope that in the future we have the opportunity to change the way we discuss these kind of issues and make some real headway into a dialogue on minimum wage jobs.
