Protests have broken out in Hungary following the government's desire to increase the overtime limit and payment timeframe for this:
Protests have broken out in Hungary after the country's parliament passed new labour laws, which have been labelled "slave labour" by opponents.
New rules mean companies can demand up to 400 hours of overtime a year and delay payment for it for three years.
While the amount of overtime is debatable, the time allowed for companies to pay it seems huge given current dynamic economical climate. In three years, there is a big chance that one may change the job or even the company closes making payments more difficult. Also, it is unclear if inflation is taken into account.
Overall, the government seems to greatly favor the employer over the employee, as the employee effectively lends money to the employer.
Question: Why does the Hungarian government want to allow delaying payment for overtime for such a long time (up to three years)?
