Regulation of Labor in the European Union in the Context of Community Enlargement

Victoria Onofrei


In general, in international and intergenerational treaties, over the millennia, work has been tacitly a right. Of course, for some time we can exclude from this “right” those who were actually forced to perform free physical labor, referring here to the period in which slavery flourished visibly and officially. Of course it would be an aberration to completely rule out this form of exploitation today, it has been cleverly camouflaged by those who still practice it to obtain as many benefits as possible in their own interest, deftly bypassing not only the legislative rules but the moral order itself of the existence of peers. From our point of view, this form of labor exploitation is attracted by the lower standards of living in developing countries, thus providing extremely cheap or free labor, when the one in greatest need is induced into error and subsequently exploited. Over the years, following the awareness and capitalization of the human personality, there is a continuous struggle with this unfortunate phenomenon. It is constantly wanted to annihilate the exploitation of the human being and improve its working conditions. The first steps in this regard were taken by the International Labor Organization, the leading player in the labor market and social protection.
