What are Volt's political goals? / A dynamic European labour market

Create a safe environment for all workers

  • Establish a ‘firewall’ between labour justice and immigration enforcement which would allow migrant workers to safely file a complaint against abusive employers without fear of losing their residence status, or in the case of undocumented migrants, being detained and deported. 

  • Adopt the Commission guidelines to incentivise victims of labour exploitation to report their experiences to a monitoring authority without facing the risk of expulsion.

  • Protect migrant workers from labour exploitation by delinking residence permits from specific jobs and increasing the length of stay to protect those in seasonal and temporary work arrangements.

The 5+1 Challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
