Wage convergence in Hungary – the record of the past ten years in a regional comparison

On average, wages in Hungary remain in the lower third of the EU 15. Although there have been significant increase in wages in recent years, the proportions did not exceed those in neighboring countries. In some countries in the region the momentum is much stronger.

This was one of the findings of the event "Wage Convergence in Hungary", which took place in Budapest on June 19, 2019. The general position of the labor market and the quality of work were also among the items discussed at the event.  In the opinion of the participants, the future evolution of work will depend especially on the outcome of the next collective bargaining rounds and on how the government will deal with the concerns of the working population.
