Workers' rights are increasingly coming under pressure due to developments such as global competition and the digital revolution. The European Commission is working on plans to improve the situation. On 19 January MEPs adopted a report stating that workers in new type of jobs should be covered by labour laws.
The digital revolution means that jobs are today much more fluid and changing in their content. This is why we have to update labour laws so that new forms of employment are covered. This particularly concerns young people, says MEP Maria João Rodrigues in an interview posted on the website of the European Parliament.
