Improving citizen’s life and also the future of European Union

Currently, the acute shortage of jobs affects the economic and social situation in the entire European Community. Labor shortages are increasing , especially among young people, who are most affected by this situation. The graduate rate is disproportionate in terms of the number of jobs and qualifications required on the labor market. the problem is to balance the scale among young people who are looking for a job , but not only. Including the consequences arising from this situation are aimed at: salary level, paid hours, quantity/quality rapport, in countries like Romania, for example, is disproportionate to the other European Union countries. Other issues requiring attention are: improving the living standard among the population , the discrepancy between the workforce and pensions that must be paid out of “our money”, lack of effective and concrete control of public money in some countries where the level of corruption is growing and affects ourselves directly, the ordinary citizens. There are many young people with fewer opportunities who are forced to leave their own country, leave their families and their children to find a better living beyond the borders of their country. More than that, in terms of their work arms , they have already began to be replaced by robots. Automation will put a monopoly on manufacturing work. From here, the labor force will be serious raised, which be compulsorily complimented by ultra-performing machines and technology. They will do what man did not do practically, arms are replaced by state-of- the art technology, will overcome production activity both in terms of quantity and quality. The European Community and the Member states will slowly have to adopt measures and countermeasures to: lack workforce, improving the quality of life in all its aspects, developing cohesion measures that do not seriously affect t5he standard of living of citizens and by which the economy is rectified.

At this point the entire European Community needs to be realistic, to see objectively, what works and does not work, what is the direction in which we are going , what the future of our Union and which of the adopted measures converge towards a good directions. States also need to cooperate and reflect on the best measures to improve the future of citizens and implicitly , the European Union.

Last August, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (US Senate) introduced the “Accountable Capitalism Act”. The legislation is intended to restore the idea that giant (American) corporations should consider the interests of all major corporate stakeholders ( employees, customers and the community and shareholders), not only shareholders, in company decisions. The Act provides: – Very large American corporations must obtain a federal charter as a “United States corporation,” which obligates company directors to consider the interests of all corporate stakeholders; – The boards of United States corporations must include substantial employee participation (no fewer than 40% of its directors must be selected by the corporation’s employees); – Sales of company shares by the directors and officers of United States corporations are restricted; – United States corporations must obtain shareholder and Board approval for all political expenditures; – A United States corporation that engages in repeated and egregious illegal conduct may have its charter revoked. The principle of “maximisation of shareholder value” adopted in the 1980s is damaging not only society at large, but corporations the adopt it as well; this due to a too low percentage of profits reinvested in the company to foster its growth. This is true not only in the USA but also in Europe; should we think to introduce a legislation similar to the Accountable Capitalism Act also in Europe? References:

Cities are, right now, part of the problem in adressing climate change. Cities consume 2/3 of the world’s energy and are responsible for 70% of global CO2 emissions. In order to build a sustainable future, cities need to become part of the solution. There is so much that needs to be done, we need to increase the use of renewable energy(wind, solar etc), upgrade the energy efficiency in buildings, transit to electric vehicles with lithium-air batteries, support community farms(intensive farming has a negative impact in global warming). Cities need to do this but they can’t do it alone; these changes are necessary but expensive. And this is where the European Union is important. The EU has the dimension, funds and power to push for this transition by creating a Green New Deal. A Green New Deal would build a sustainable and more green future in Europe but also solve the problems of chronical unemployment. With all the problems that unfair trade policies create to Blue-Collar Working class; green collar jobs are the alternative ! They can’t be shipped overseas and many of them can’t be replaced by technology in the near future. We will need green building architects, solar energy engineers, eletricians who install solar panels, worker’s that insulate older buildings and many other jobs of low, medium and high skill that need to be here in Europe! I’m optimistic about these changes, after all, cities are the magnet for innovation, entrepeneurship and development and the combination in a partnership with businesses and the European Union we will build a more susteinable future.
