The Hungarian government “guarantees” that everyone will have “a decent job to support their family” once the pandemic is over, state secretary Katalin Novák told MTI. Novák said that the government was working to create as many new jobs “as the virus destroys”. The state secretary spoke after a teleconference of welfare and labour ministers of the European Union, at which she presented the Hungarian government’s job protection measures. Participants in the conference discussed a strategic document drawn up by the European Commission concerning issues around demographic trends, Novák said, hailing that officials in Brussels “may have recognised at last” that Europe’s ageing population could pose the greatest challenge for the bloc in the next decades. Novák regretted, however, that the document “is lacking aspects of helping young people in having as many children as they wish”.
