For Fidesz, Raising Minimum Wage Not As Important As Raising Áder's Salary

For Fidesz, Raising Minimum Wage Not As Important As Raising Áder's Salary
Employers' organizations believe it is acceptable at wage negotiations to raise the minimum wage above the previously set 8 per cent if the Orbán government brings cuts in social security contributions forward to early next year. However, Fidesz refuses to comply with the conditions of employers, thus taking away from workers again and depriving them of the wage increase they deserve.

It seems that with Fidesz’ two-thirds a quick decision on wage increases can only be made if it is about doubling President János Áder's salary of HUF 1.5 million. It is infinitely hypocritical of Fidesz to make excuses, as we can see every day that they can change any law or regulation from one moment to the other in the interest of things that matter to them.
 
According to MSZP, Hungarian employees deserve a higher standard of living and higher salaries, so Fidesz must meet employers' conditions.
