At the demonstration dubbed “Enough!” and organised by unions for ambulance workers, Zsolt Kusper, head of the Hungarian Ambulance Workers’ Federation (MOMSZ), said that they will carry on demonstrating until they achieve a net wage hike to the level of current gross wages, and until a career model [similar to teachers’] has been introduced for ambulance workers.
Kusper called government claims that ambulance workers’ wages averaged at monthly 239,000 forints (EUR 776.5) “false”, and said that net wages in the sector are around 119,000 forints.
