Opposition Called for Linking Starter Teachers’ Salaries to Central Bank Governor’s Pay

The opposition Socialists have called for teachers’ salaries to be linked to the central bank governor’s pay. Socialist parliamentary group leader Bertalan Tóth told an online press briefing that a current government proposal to raise György Matolcsy’s salary from 5 million forints (EUR 12,275) a month to over 6 million forints was unacceptable.
