Now for the bad news. Even with a wage rise of 18 percent, you’ll still be earning less than in 2022 due to our EU Leading 25.6 percent inflation rate (we’re second in Europe as a whole – Turkiye leads, there).
Not our Politicians fault, of course. It never is!
News like this THROWN out there by the present Orban Government, should be “Show us the Money” – then we may BELEIVE You.
Norbert comments with FACT, that it’s ALL a catch up game, that if – repeat IF – it HAPPENS, and Hungary, news to-morrow what may be, and it won’t be Good News, this type of matter – being pay rises, promised by a Government – that if the books REALLY where opened – would expose them being INSOLVEVENT.
Laughed at the comment of “closing the gap” between Doctors and Health Care/Nurses Wages.
Answer to this idiotic example given by Peter Takacs – State Secretary in CHARGE of Healthcare – using PROPAGANDA in his Comments that hold not FACT nor Truth – is that NEVER never will that be, that the GAP, using country’s that are DEMOCRACY’s – there is Day-light hours between Doctors and Health Care / Nurses Wages.
“Show us the Money” – or better still where is the money coming from?
