EU Social Affairs Commissioner 'Wages in Germany Must Increase'

Wages in Germany must increase and the government should establish a nationwide minimum wage, says EU Social Affairs Commissioner László Andor. In an interview with a German daily, he calls for a radical change in policy in the euro crisis and argues for a shift away from the country's export model.
"Saving alone does not create growth," said EU Social Affairs Commissioner László Andor, shown here at a press conference on April 26 in Brussels.
