While in Western Europe, despite high inflation, workers prefer not to work overtime, in Hungary, overtime could be the solution to drastic price increases if people want to avoid their salary being completely devalued, writes hrportal.hu.

In the lower salary categories, high inflation will affect employees' desire to work more overtime, which will also be an option for companies to raise wages.

However, this also has its price, as health and personal life can suffer from additional tasks beyond regular working hours.

However, where orders and revenues decrease, this will not be possible, outlined Zoltán Karácsony, a jobs market expert at the portal.
