Hungary -Social workers protest low pay and working conditions -May 31, 2015

Demands for higher wages, introduction of a wage scale, a ‘career model’, regular reconciliation and for work breaks to be factored into their hours.

Thousands of social workers demonstrated for higher wages and better working conditions in Budapest.  The average monthly wage in that sector is HUF 83,000 (275 euro). They are demanding higher wages regardless of position, the introduction of a wage scale, a ‘career model’, regular reconciliation and that work breaks be factored into their hours. The subject of wage increases has been removed from the government’s agenda. Several trade union leaders together took to the stage to show that they cannot be divided.
