On Tuesday, Belgian MPs, members of the Social Affairs Committee, voted – unanimously – a resolution to include the proposal for a European minimum wage on the agenda of the EU Presidency chaired by Belgium starting in July 2010. (1) The resolution was introduced by 4 Belgian Socialist MPs last October, in line with the Party of European Socialist (PES). The resolution does not specify a nominal value for a European minimum wage. Instead, it sets the minimum wage above the poverty line in each country, currently at 60 per cent of the country’s median income.
