Due to the rising cost of living and high inflation, more students will probably take on casual jobs in the winter than before, writes hrportal.hu.

Today, an under-25-year-old can earn up to a net HUF 443,700, the gross average salary of last summer, after the income of under-25s became tax-free.

The average hourly student wage in Budapest is currently HUF 1,600-1,700.

The figure is HUF 100-300 lower in the Eastern Hungarian and Southern Transdanubian regions, but the difference between intellectual and physical work is no longer as significant as it used to be.
