EESC "Quality jobs for all ages must be a priority"

13 Jul 2011
Ref: 080/2011

The EU should strive to enhance job prospects and working conditions across the whole population to counter many of the difficulties we are currently experiencing. This was the message today from the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) plenary session. Dealing with the challenges of an aging population and creating an agenda for new skills and jobs, particularly for young people were the subjects of two opinions, both aiming at contributing to a more expedient European labour market.
