Thou­sands protest over Hun­gar­ian ‘slave law’

The Sunday Telegraph - - World News -

Thou­sands marched through Bu­dapest yes­ter­day to protest against a new law that al­lows em­ploy­ers to ask staff to work up to 400 hours per year of over­time. Opposition groups have staged ral­lies in the Hun­gar­ian cap­i­tal and other cities against Vik­tor Or­bán, the prime min­is­ter.

The lat­est, or­gan­ised by opposition par­ties, trade unions and civic groups, tar­geted the “slave law”, passed by par­lia­ment last month, which could add two hours to an av­er­age work day.
