The EU approach on these policies is changing. The European Pillar of Social Rights was proclaimed in 2017, and in this year's State of the Union, Jean-Claude Juncker raised the importance of putting it into EU law. Historically the EU always had a social dimension with some conferred powers within the area of social policy. But the recently proposed directives are far more detailed than before, leading to questions on whether the social pillar could become far too interfering with the well-functioning national labour-market systems.
What impact will this new development have on European prosperity going forward?
