The ability of posting to increase export of services, to increase employment, to decrease unemployment, to increase household incomes and labour tax revenues in the sending MS are important features

Frederic De Wispelaere,
HIVA KU Leuven

The evidence shows that the source of social dumping is not the posting of workers, but undeclared work, bogus self-employment and other forms of fraud.
