EU-wide Youth Employment Guarantee (Recommendation)

The Commission wants the Member States to provide all young people between the ages of 15 and 24 with a guarantee that they will receive employment or training within four months of leaving school or losing a job.


Reducing indirect labour costs for employers can help increase employment. Compensation for this through increased taxation on energy and emissions would lead to increased production costs and thus destroy jobs. Minimum wages destroy jobs whose added value is gained below minimum wages.
