Protection for Elderly! Funds for Local Governments for Protection!

Protection for Elderly! Funds for Local Governments for Protection!
The government’s belated and inadequate epidemiological measures fail to ensure the protection of healthcare and social workers or the elderly, and even exploit local governments that are still able to help, depriving them of the means of protection.

We have to declare that this government is very amateur when it comes to protecting citizens!
MSZP therefore demands that:

  • The government strengthen the epidemiological protection of nursing homes
  • Health and social workers be constantly provided with the appropriate protective gear and have their work recognized by a wage supplement because of the working hazards. They should be given a raise, and employees in the social sector ought to receive a one-time benefit of HUF 500,000
  • Local governments receive additional resources instead of deductions.

It is unacceptable that the government is still failing in its statutory duty to protect the lives and health of its citizens. The work of those who work for this purpose is not appreciated, and local governments that are independent of the government are looted so that they cannot afford to help anymore, either!
