DK: Rise in wage diminished by weakened forint
According to the Democratic Coalition (DK), in the long run only the introduction of the euro and the European minimum wage can be a way out of the livelihood crisis of Hungarians, László Varju, the vice-president of the party, said at an online press conference, according to hrportal.hu.
Although the minimum wage rose by 4% in February this year, it is still worth less than last year, he stressed.
Varju blamed the "government's faulty economic policy," for the weakened forint.
According to the opposition politician, since this livelihood crisis was caused by the current government, it can only be resolved with a change of government in 2022.
