Survey: Majority In Hungary Want Job Protection, Not Benefits
Fully 80% of respondents in a recent Századvég survey said they expected the government to save their jobs rather than to provide welfare benefits, the pollster said on Tuesday, adding that only 18% of respondents held the opposite view.

“Four-fifths of the population support job-protection measures, clearly indicating that Hungarians are aware of the seriousness of the situation, but they want solutions that ensure the prosperity and wellbeing of families in the long run,” Századvég said.

According to Századvég, Hungarian voters support the government’s policies launched in 2010, “aimed at creating jobs and increasing the country’s room for economic manoeuvre”.

It also insisted that “every crisis also offers an opportunity”, adding that in the current situation the government should concentrate its resources on “building a modern economic system that serves the interests and wellbeing of the people”, fit for the 21st century, and it mentioned solutions that promote innovation, digitalisation and climate-friendly outcomes.
