Women’s employment rate growth highest in EU
The employment rate among women grew by 3.3% in Hungary in 2014, the highest growth rate in the EU, according to Budapesti Vállalkozásfejlesztési Közalapítvány (BVK), online news portal vg.hu reported on Saturday.
The employment rate is currently 55.9% among the 15-64-year-old female population. The growth rate would be 2.6% if the fostered worker program participants were excluded from the statistics, BVK told MTI. Fostered workers are hired by the government and make less than minimum wage.
