Coronavirus – Jobbik: State Should Pay Newly Jobless HUF 100,000 Wage

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.04.02.

The opposition Jobbik party has proposed that the state provide a monthly 100,000 forints (EUR 275) as a “disaster benefit” to all people that have lost their jobs due to the novel coronavirus outbreak in Hungary.

Jobbik MP Andrea Varga-Damm told an online press conference on Thursday that the sum could ensure a basic subsistence for troubled households.

The deputy slammed the government for the recent law granting it extra powers, arguing that the constitution and effective regulations concerning disasters catered to all eventualities in such situations.
