Socialists press government to ‘stand by workers’

The co-leader of the opposition Socialist Party called on the government to "finally stand by Hungarian workers" instead of "serving big business" at a press conference on Saturday.

Imre Komjathi called the government a “charlatan” when it came to the matter of workers, pointing to a recent decision to withdraw and modify the law on guest workers.

He presented a proposal by the Socialists that would ensure neither Hungarian nor guest worker is subjected to “slave labour”, while providing a guarantee that Hungarian workers are not disadvantaged because “the government makes them compete with guest workers”.
