The Maltese economic system is built on worker exploitation.

The economic growth of the past years should have improved the quality of life of workers. Instead, we are in a situation where many workers have to make do with low wages, work precariously, and in bad conditions. We believe that we should shift to an economic model based on social justice.

On the 1st of May, Workers’ Day, the campaign “Justice for Workers” was launched with the presentation of a document outlining how we can shift towards an economic system based on social justice. In this document, a number of problems in the Maltese economic system and the injustices that a wide range of workers have to face because of them, are listed.

We believe that there are solutions and changes that should be implemented without delay in order to destroy this economic system based on precarity, environmental destruction, low wages and worker exploitation which only benefits the few.
