In Europe you’re considered poor if you have less than 60 percent of the average national income to live. Today, 122 million Europeans live below the breadline. Poor children, unemployed young adults and senior citizens whose pensions are too low or who have to share them with their children and grandchildren are the three groups with the highest risk of poverty. One of the underlying reasons for poverty are Europe’s increasingly precarious working conditions.
Is there a European Master plan to change their lives for better – or do we have to accept that 20 percent of our population lives in poverty? What is the political prize Europe will ultimately have to pay, if the citizens do not believe in the European idea anymore?
