- Hungary Matters
Hungarians often enjoy an “extra” Monday or Friday off if a holiday happens to fall on a Tuesday or a Thursday, but they must make up for it by working on a Saturday.
Párbeszéd lawmaker Bence Tordai told a press conference that “six-day workweeks” should be scrapped. He argued that Hungarian employees were “overworked as it is” and that economies where people work 3-400 hours less than in Hungary were more developed.
Hungarians this year have to work on six Saturdays to make up for the weekdays off.
