The E.U is a group of countries whose governments work together. It’s a bit like a club, to join you have to agree to follow the rules and in return you get certain benefits. Each country has to pay money to be a member. This is mostly done through taxes. The E.U uses the money to change the way people live and do business in Europe. Countries join because they think that they will benefit from the changes that the E.U makes.
