EU superstate to control minimum wage as it sets sights on meddling with workers’ rights

The European Commission chief is pushing policies which will include a minimum wage, gender equality protection and new rights on “quality education and training” for the eurozone, with non-euro countries allowed to opt-in.

Most of the policies have previously been considered off-limits for the Brussels club and have been issues for individual member countries. 

But in a campaign to seize even more control over member states, Mr Juncker is steaming ahead with proposals for a “social” element to EU policy, first dreamed up in September.
