The opposition Jobbik-Conservatives on Wednesday held a press conference in front of a Samsung factory in Göd, near Budapest, under the title “the Orbán government has decided: half a million migrant workers instead of Hungarian employees”. Zoltán Péter Varga, the party’s representative in the Pest County general assembly and a Dunakeszi local council representative, told a press conference that the plant had caused great concerns to locals because potential pollution from the plant raised fears. “The battery plant is taking significant security measures but instead of focusing on operations, they focus on ensuring that no information is leaked from the plant,” he added. He also said that it was a reasonable expectation by locals that taxes paid by the plant should be fully granted to them.
Dániel Z Kárpát, a party lawmaker and deputy leader, told the presser that the plant employing thousands of people had only 200 workers from Göd. The party would like to ensure that initially those jobs get subsidies from Hungarian taxpayers’ money that are filled by Hungarians.
