Minimum Wage

For decades, Germany defined its own economic model which didn’t recognize legally guaranteed national minimum wage.

buzek Jerzy Buzek, President of the European Parliament
This forum has always been important, and now it has become even more significiant, because we want to recover from the crisis as soon as possible. And here entrepreneurs, local self-government activists and politicians debate exactly, how to lead economy out of crisis. And a few years ago we discussed, how to reach economic growth at the level of 5-6 percent, and, we have already succeeded in it. That is why, I am convinced that thanks to this forum it will be possible even faster.

    This lavish multilingualism was on Johnson’s mind at a conference last week in Krynica, just inside Poland near the border with Slovakia. The annual gathering (billed as “the Davos of the east”) is a kind of showcase for today’s Europe. The conference, though heavily Polish in attendance, is officially trilingual (English and Russian materials are available everywhere), and even more multilingual in its attendees. A typical panel featured two Hungarians, one Pole, one Czech, one German and one American.

    Poland and other Baltic countries might serve as a model for the crisis-ridden South Europe. In the discussion on the indebited European South, the positive example of Poland and other CEE countries is unfairly passed over. It surprises, especially considering the fact that those countries might serve as a model for others and on the other hand, they may be natural allies for the raising concern Southern European countries.
