This year, the First of May is not like any other year. Millions of workers around the world face uncertainty. More than 50 million Europeans risk losing their job. We need to help them, to help businesses keep all their workers and to support the self-employed. Today’s decisions will determine if the COVID-19 crisis turns into a recession and unemployment crisis. We are pushing the EU to act urgently to avoid that scenario.

As our president Iratxe García says: It is time to stand up together. It is time for Social Democracy.
