DK: European minimum wage, ‘farsighted economic policy’ needed for higher Hungarian wages
At an online press briefing, Laszlo Kordas accused the government of wasting the past 13 years, insisting that the average wage in Hungary had failed to narrow the cap with wage levels of most European countries. The majority of indicators, he added, showed an growing gap between Hungary and the rest of Europe on this score.
DK’s shadow government “is the only hope” for Hungarian workers to receive decent, European-level payment for their work, he said. Prime Minister Viktor Orban wants Hungarians to work for Balkan or Asian wages, but “our place is in the EU” and Hungarians deserve European-level wages, he added.
