Hungary -Health care workers organise protest marches over low pay -May 12, 2015

Health care workers demand a living wage.

Health care workers have organised two simultaneous protest marches against precarious pay and working conditions.

The workers are demanding a living wage, which would allow them to practice their profession in the country without falling into poverty.
