What has EU delivered for its people and what role can it play in the world today? While the European project is a work in progress, the debate about changes should not deter from acknowledging the benefits that the EU has brought, writes the OECD.

A new OECD report on Europe Day, The European Union: A People-Centred Agenda, stands back and assesses the issues. Employment is rising in OECD countries but most jobs continue to be created in relatively low-productivity, low-wage activities, a new OECD report says.

The data show wage growth improving in recent years but remaining below pre-crisis rates in two thirds of OECD countries. Governments need to overhaul their approach to jobs to reduce social and economic tensions, the OECD Employment Outlook 2019 says.

The digital transformation, globalisation and demographic changes have already been reshaping the world of work. Without rapid action, many people, particularly the low skilled, will be left behind, the report warns.

Income tax and social security contributions declined slightly for the average worker across the OECD in 2018, driven by major reforms in just a handful of countries, according to a new OECD report. Some two-thirds of OECD countries saw slight increases in this so-called tax wedge.

The OECD is launching the I am the Future of Work campaign. From students to CEOs, everyone is shaping the future of work and their voices should be at the heart of the debate.

The campaign highlights what the future of work means for people and the urgency to build a future that works for all. The Future of Work is now.
