More than 28,200 students are participating in a government-subsidized summer jobs scheme this year, state secretary for employment policy Sándor Czomba said on public television on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Czomba noted that the government had earmarked HUF 3.5 billion for the scheme this year.

Under the program, local councils are eligible for subsidies covering 100pc of payroll costs for students for two months, although work hours are limited to six a day.

Businesses in the farm, tourism, and catering sectors are eligible for subsidies covering 75% of payroll for students who can work up to eight hours a day.
