Fidesz to lure pensioners back to work
Hungary’s governing party Fidesz has acknowledged that the lack of professionals in the workforce has caused a skills shortage, as such they are ready to “modify tax laws in order to motivate pensioners to work”, Fidesz MP Balázs Tuzson said, according to a report today from Hungarian news portal index.hu.
Tuzson said that Hungary needs a system that motivates pensioners to work in sectors struck by skill shortages. Index.hu, however, pinpointed that a couple of years earlier Tuzson said young people were unable to start working as pensioners occupied their positions in the workforce.
