Jobbik accuses govt of importing migrant workers to keep wages low

May 13th, 2019

A lawmaker of opposition Jobbik on Monday accused ruling Fidesz of deliberately pursuing a policy of accepting Hungarian emigration while quietly importing migrant workers with a view to keeping wages low. Adam Mirkoczki told a press conference that whereas Fidesz campaigned under the slogans "Let's stop Brussels!", "Let's stop Soros!" and "Let's stop immigration!", official data show at least 86,000 "migrant workers have been brought into the country". Mirkoczki noted how a shortage of labour put upward pressure on wages. In order to ease this pressure, the government's solution was "to import workers" from abroad and house them, he said, referring to a government scheme to build worker hostels around the country.
