Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
EU Citizens Push for Better Wages for Gig* Economy Workers
The European Commission [!] gave the green light Tuesday to a citizen's petition seeking a minimum wage for gig* economy workers, allowing petition organizers to begin collecting signatures of support.
Some know well that struggles for social benefits and standardized contracts and against wage discrimination of disabled workers in various EU member states, for example, is a long story.
Initiative organizers have a year to collect at least 1 million signatures from no fewer than seven EU states to move their petition to the next step: commission action. The commission will have three months to decide whether or not to implement the actions sought by the initiative, and must explain its decision either way in writing.

* 21st cen. US-Eng. colloquial  self-employed person; syn  contractor, conditional employee, contingent worker, freelancer, day laborer; arch. jobber

Employee activism in this sphere is a direct result of defects in Art. 153.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
