LMP calls for social sector pay rises matching inflation

Pay rises in the social sector need to keep pace with inflation, the spokesperson for welfare and family policy of opposition party LMP said on Sunday.

Social sector pay rises in a draft decree the government has made available for public consultation are “minimal” and mainly affect people who have worked for over 30 years, Krisztina Hohn said.

The need for social services of Hungary’s ageing population is on the rise, while the average age of Hungarians employed in the social sector is also increasing, she warned.
