Mi Hazank against ‘Hungarian workers getting replaced with foreigners’

Opposition Mi Hazank labour expert Janos Lantos condemned on Friday that "Hungarian workers are getting fired and replaced with foreigners" throughout the country.

He told a press conference that government claims about foreigners only getting employed for jobs that cannot be filled by Hungarians were untrue. He added that multinationals were “importing masses of guest workers in an organised way to Hungary”.

“In practice, masses of Hungarian workers get fired and anti-Hungarian discrimination is evolving,” he said. He added that Hungarians were becoming “second-rate employees”, with many companies employing them only as rent workers.

Lantos called for making it mandatory that labour hire agencies ensure the same rights to their employees as to those “employed in the traditional way”.
