Leaders of the Jobs, Bread and Decent Wages (MKTB) movement have invited Mária Schmidt to go on a one-day study tour in Edelény, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, after the head of the House of Terror museum called Hungarian workers irresponsible, lazy, unproductive and demanding.
In a June 12 contribution to the political blog Mandiner, Schmidt wrote “those with whom we are competing are numerous, quick and very ambitious. Cheap, undemanding, well-skilled and productive labour is facing our workers, who are unproductive, very demanding, lazy and most of all unwilling to take responsibility”.
House of Terror spokesman Péter Hömöstrei said Schmidt will not be taking up the invitation.
The invitation remains open, said MKTB president Imre Komjáthi, because “dialogue is essential if we want to understand one another”.
