SOCIALISTS CALL FOR EUROPEAN MINIMUM WAGE OF EUR 750

 

The minimum wage in every European Union member state should be raised to at least 750 euros a month, Socialist MEP István Ujhelyi told a press conference. The Socialists also suggest that the minimum pension should be 300 euros a month, and that the state should pay a monthly subsidy of 150 euros to families per each child, Ujhelyi said, adding that the EU’s direct agricultural subsidy should be raised to 300 euros per hectare, from the current 219 euros. Ujhelyi also proposed that the value added tax should have a 20 % cap in the community. Hungary has a top VAT rate of 27 %.
