One of the fundamental freedoms of European law is the free movement of people and labour. The right to work in the European area involves different areas of social life, starting from the economy and living standards and ending by the formation of the citizen in moral and professional terms. The free movement of labour allows countries whose populations are facing social problems: the lack of jobs, low pay, poor working conditions, to emigrate in search of jobs and better livelihoods than in the home country.
