Hungary - Wage increases for teachers are modest - March 31, 2017

A study by the research agency Policy Agenda shows that there had been a 38.7% gross wage increase in the education sector since 2010, compared to only a 22.7% increase in the preceding six years. However, net salaries showed little improvement: an increase of 33.5% was logged between 2010-2016, compared to 38% in the preceding six years. Although wages did not grow at a higher rate on average than in 2004-2010, real net increases did occur in some professions within the education sector.
