Around 65,000 students expected to work temporary summer jobs
The number of students who work temporary jobs this summer could reach 65,000-70,000, level with the number in 2019, student cooperatives association DiákÉSZ told MTI.
DiákÁSZ noted that around 50,000 students had been placed in temporary positions in January-May.
Students are expected to work in the largest number in the manufacturing, trade, catering, farming, and tourism sectors. Temporary positions will involve 30-40 hours of work per week.
The gross hourly wage for student labor is expected to reach HUF 1,200-1,300, but students working in the capital could earn HUF 1,300-1,400.
DiákÉSZ's 15 members account for 65-70% of turnover on the market for temporary work and odd jobs organized by student cooperatives in Hungary's legal framework for such employment.
