However, the National Employment Service and the National Statistical Office have shown that, once again, it is not what the Prime Minister says that counts, but what he does.Contrary to the false propaganda, the reality is that the average job search duration is almost 9 months and in one year the number of people who have been out of work for at least a year has increased by more than 10%.
And behind the figures are people and families who have been on state support for just 3 months, the shortest period of support in the European Union but also among the worst in the world.
The problem is not the motivation of job seekers, but their chances! That is why we need to create a caring and opportunity creating state after the change of government.
United for Hungary believes that those who have lost their jobs are also entitled to a secure livelihood, and will therefore increase the maximum duration of the jobseeker's allowance from the current 3 to 9 months after 3 April.
