Orban's "slave law" shall not pass- Solidarity with Hungarian workers by WFTU-PAME

New demonstrations took place in Budapest last Friday against the antiworker "slave law", while the defiant far-right Prime Minister Viktor Orban dismissed the protests of the last weeks as "hysterical shouting". According to a poll published by the Publicus company on Friday, more than two-thirds of Hungarians thought the protests were justified and that the overtime law would hurt workers' interests.

Regarding the situation in Hungary, the "slave law" and the mass protests, you can read more in the report of the Hungarian Worker's Party (Munkáspárt).

Hungary Protests - What is happening?

Several protests have been held in Hungary since December 8, mobilising a few thousands of people. In the parliament, the opposition parties attacked the ruling parties and wanted to paralyse the parliament's work by obstruction. What is happening in Hungary?
  1. On November 2, 2018, three lawmakers of the ruling Fidesz party submitted a draft law in order to amend the labour code. The amendment allows on top of the 40 normal working hours per week 400 extra hours per year, instead of the current 250 hours. But the amount of extra work should be counted not in 12 months as before, but in 36 months.
