The Commissioner of Employment recommends being very cautious before raising the minimum wage

The European Commissioner for Employment, Marianne Thyssen, warns in an interview with Efe that "we must be very cautious" before raising the Minimum Interprofessional Salary (SMI), to avoid causing consequences such as job destruction.

"We are in favor of establishing minimum wages but whether or not it is positive to raise the amount depends on the circumstances, is something that should be studied carefully and after talking with the social partners so that it does not become a problem for employment," said Thyssen in Helsinki, where she has participated in the Congress of the European People's Party, of which the Belgian is vice-president.
