Orban wants you! ... as slave labourer

Postby Risottia » Thu Dec 13, 2018 9:10 am

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46551904

Tl;dr , Orban's majority is about to allow Hungarian companies to demand their workers to work an extra 50-day's worth per year, while being allowed to withhold extra time wages for up to three years.

That, of course, flies right into the face of Orban's supporters at home and abroad, who use to claim the V4's ultra-right leader is all about defending the European masses impoverished by the evil liberal-jewish-masonic-commie-eurocrat-muslim conspiracy and similar populist bullshit.

As I post, riot is erupting around and inside the Budapest parliament, according to the notoriously liberal-jewish-etc fake-news propaganda outlet called BBC.

Do you guess this at least is going to open the eyes of the Hungarian voters about Orban and his coalition, or will they continue to vote for the guy who forces them to work two extra months for free because he's all oh-so-tough against those pesky unChristian refugees?

What happens if the company goes bankrupt a year or so after your overtime ? Are the backwages lost ?

And what if you switch employers in the 3 year period ?

It doesnt matter what Orban does. Hungary is a democracy in name only at this point. The election rules that his party have implemented and the gerrymandering they have done have made it impossible for them to lose their supermajority. That's not even mentioning all the other things he has done.

Dishonest OP forgets to mention that employees can refuse to work extra overtime outside of their contracted hours, and Hungary is simply putting their law exactly in line with UK laws on working hours which prohibit working more than 48 hours a week unless the employee explicitly makes a written statement, which is not currently possible in Hungary where the employee is limited to 44 hours a week with no exceptions. This law allows the employee to bypass these restrictions if they wish to do so.

Contrary to the statements of the leftists in the thread above, not everyone on the planet is lazy and entitled, and some want to work longer and get paid more as a result. Hungary's laws do not allow them to do so.

Surprise surprise.

Working "no more than 44 hours per week, no exceptions" seems to fly right in the face of reporting that Hungary's existing overtime allowance - which the BBC frame as "what employers are allowed to demand of their workers" - of 250 hours.

In my current job, I don't have the right to refuse overtime outside of my contracted hours (I have signed the relevant declaration), because my working hours are defined as "Monday to Sunday inclusive". But, my contracted hours are only for 40 hours a week, 5 days Monday-Friday.

And guess when I get paid for my overtime?
About 30 times faster than Hungarians will.

A bit crummy but not slavery. And with most jobs you have a massive paper trial that won’t let you forget

Working "no more than 44 hours per week, no exceptions" seems to fly right in the face of reporting that Hungary's existing overtime allowance - which the BBC frame as "what employers are allowed to demand of their workers" - of 250 hours.


https://accace.com/labour-law-and-emplo ... n-hungary/
https://uk.practicallaw.thomsonreuters. ... sc.Default)&firstPage=true&comp=pluk&bhcp=1

Working time in Hungary is limited to 40 hours a week full-time (although may be increased to 12 hours a day with extra rest days so annualised same). Additional overtime amounts to 250 hours a week, or otherwise 44 hours a week in total. There are no exceptions for additional overtime beyond this, thus making 44 hours a week the absolute maximum you can possibly work, annualised. Or working cycle, which is 4 months.

Where are you even getting your "cannot refuse" statement from? Neither the BBC nor anything else even says that, most miss out this key detail entirely.

You can make the argument that employees may be coerced into this psychologically or out of financial need, sure, but you can't say that this is forced overtime/working hours/slavery because it simply isn't, the overtime is there for those who want to make use of it not for the employers to demand it. Plus it's a very tight labour market, Hungary has more jobs than the unemployed, if any employee is pissed they can jump ship easier than in France where they'd be unemployed for a long while.

The timescale isn't, but withholding pay is. Three years is pretty shit, no idea why that's there. In the UK it's a maximum of six months. Currently it's 1 year in Hungary, which is pretty standard for the region and other manufacturing-based economies.

The allowed pay delay is odd, but beyond that this looks like a pretty run-of-the-mill overtime law. Given the previous limitations, it looks needed.

What is? I acknowledge the extension in the withholding period is crap, although I would contend that you're no more likely to remember what happened last December in Germany if someone withheld your pay than two Decembers ago in Hungary under new laws, so it's pretty pointless.

Workers can work more for more money for the same or higher hourly rates, so I don't really care about what a man with a vested interest wants to say. He's probably butthurt because the law also gives the power of overtime hour and wage negotiating to the individual and excludes unions for all other purposes than overtime disputes.

Oh, and of course you'd find entirely normal to have your wage postponed by three years.
