Mind the gap

Left Takes on the EU by The Left in the European Parliament

Episode notes

More and more Europeans struggle to make the ends meet, despite earning a salary. The root of the problem is inequality. Europeans are more unequal today than they were four decades ago.

Paid holidays, sick leave, unemployment, social benefits, healthcare... None of the rights that we enjoy today would exist if it wasn't for workers' activism. Today, more than ever, they cannot be taken for granted.

We discussed the current state of the workers' movement across Europe with Left MEPs Özlem Demirel and Nikolaj Villumsen.
