Czech MEPs welcome European Commission lawsuit against Austria over different allowances for non-expatriate children of EU workers

The European Commission (EC) has sued Austria at the European Court of Justice over the so-called indexation of allowances for the children of foreign nationals working there. A spokesperson for the EC announced the news and said the measures are discriminatory and contravene EU law. Czech workers are among those complaining of disadvantage when Austria disburses different allowances to them for their children who remain in the Czech Republic while their parents work in Austria. Czech MEPs welcomed the lawsuit and have been among those who convinced the EU executive to react vigorously to the measures.

My story

I have always been interested in politics. That is why I decided in 2006 to join KDU-ČSL, Christian and Democratic Union – Czechoslovak People\'s Party. Although I ran successful business dealing with crisis management, I realized that if I really wanted to change something, I had to be a firm part of it. Therefore, in 2014, I ran for the European Parliament as number three on the list and I succeeded. I became a Member of the European Parliament. In 2019, thanks to your support, I made it again. This is why I can still be MEP to protect your interests.
