In the 12 years of Fidesz governing, the Hungarian minimum wage has doubled in euro terms and almost tripled in forints.
It was Ft 73,500 per month in 2010, now it is Ft 200,000, but due to the depreciation of the forint, it rose to only €542 from €272.
Meanwhile, in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland, where the minimum wage was higher than in Hungary 12 years ago, the figure has more than doubled in euro terms.
In Lithuania, which lagged behind Hungary in 2010, the minimum wage has increased by 214% from €232 to €730.
