Opposition Socialist MP Nándor Gúr has challenged Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to try to live on the minimum wage for one month. Gúr put HUF 66,500 in an envelope at a press conference and said he was offering it to Orbán. He said that despite increases in the minimum wage in recent years, its purchasing power has decreased by 10% since 2010. Gúr said he would carry the envelope all day in Parliament and Orbán can collect it any time. It would give the prime minister “a more realistic idea” of how Hungarians live today. Last year’s figures showed that the subsistence level was HUF 87,500 a month and public workers were earning HUF 51,000, Gúr said.
