Minimum Wages in Europe: A Strategy against Wage-Dumping Policies?

Minimum Wages in Europe: A Strategy against Wage-Dumping Policies? | real utopias | Scoop.it

In times where trade unions plead for more solidarity within the EU, a system of European minimum wages is the way to create solidarity among workers. Minimum wages are not an objective in themselves. They are only an instrument to fight rising inequalities and increased precarious work. The European trade union movement should find a rapid agreement on the principles and standards for a system of European minimum wages. These principles must define, in our view, the standards for national minimum wages, determined either by law or a national collective agreement.

Slavoj Zizek | God in Pain - Inversions of Apocalypse | Full Film - YouTube

A brilliant dissection and reconstruction of the three major faith-based systems of belief in the world today, from one of the world's most articulate intellectuals, Slavoj Zizek, in conversation with Croatian philosopher Boris Gunjevic. In six chapters that describe Christianity, Islam, and Judaism in fresh ways using the tools of Hegelian and Lacanian analysis, God in Pain: Inversions of Apocalypse shows how each faith understands humanity and divinity--and how the differences between the faiths may be far stranger than they may at first seem.
