Gov’t office chief outlines employment policies, subsidy for hospitals with no abortions

Government office chief János Lázár told a weekly press briefing that the cabinet has decided to allocate 33.3 billion forints (EUR 106 million) for raising wages of employees of church-run and other non-state-run social institutions and 7.4 billion forints for raising the wages of graduates working in social services. It was also decided that all employees in social services who hold health-related jobs should be paid in line with the wage scale used in the health care sector, Lázár said.

The government has also decided to downsize the country’s fostered jobs scheme over the next five years, gradually reducing the number of participants from an average of 216,000 to 100,000. The government is allocating 40 billion forints to support the placement of fostered workers into private-sector jobs, he added. There are currently 37,000 unfilled jobs for unskilled workers. Jobseekers will be obliged to take any available job within the administrative district they reside in and can participate in the fostered job scheme only if no other jobs are available, Lázár said.

Also, the government is providing 7.8 billion forints in support for setting up a new gynaecology clinic in Budapest that will refuse to perform abortions, he said. Doctors at the new clinic established in cooperation by the Bethesda Children’s Hospital and the Budai Irgalmasrendi Hospital will not be allowed to accept tips, Lázár added. Lázár announced that Hungary will apply to become the host country for the London-based European Banking Authority and the European Medicines Agency when Britain exits the European Union, he said.

  • the new clinic established in cooperation by the Bethesda Children’s Hospital

    “Founded in 1959, Bethesda Health, Inc., is a healthcare organization serving the medical needs of South Palm Beach County”

    So how much did this US-company bribe Fidesz to get a license to make free money in Hungary?

  • the government is providing 7.8 billion forints in support for setting up a new gynaecology clinic in Budapest that will refuse to perform abortions

    Yes, women who need an abortion, after rape, etc, will be advised to run-down Hungarian State Hospitals for a few years to come, then only illegal back-street clinics.
    Fidesz’ women will have enough money to travel abroad to fix their ‘indiscretion’.

      Yes, back to the good oldtimes of “Angel Makers” as these women were called in Germany.

      Hungary needs children – at any cost!

      • National Hiphop

        Hungary has plenty of Roma children, which fact qualifies the “population decline” as bullshit.

        • wolfi

          There still is a decline in Hungary’s population – I remember figures of about 100 000 deaths and 70 000 births (including all the Roma children …) for 9 months (?).
