Again, an orbital big lie was published by the index

The index lies that "According to an EU survey, 35 percent of Hungarians lost their jobs in part or in whole due to the epidemic."
With this, the index has completely deviated from reality, as 4,500,000 people worked in Hungary before the outbreak, 35% means that 1,557,000 people lost their jobs in Hungary, and their article also states that 43% of people wages have fallen to 2,025,000 people. In contrast, Tímea Szabó lied to half a million lost jobs, and the reality is that 130,000 people became unemployed at the peak of the epidemic, a figure that fell to 100,000 by the end of May, and the June figures are not yet known.

The "Numbers" team has launched a quick poll so that this time, in addition to official data, our readers can also refute the propaganda page of Hungary's largest left-liberal fake news producer.

In 4 hours, more than a thousand people answered our question, 94 percent (939 people) of the respondents chose the option “My salary did not decrease and I did not lose my job”, 4 percent (42 people) indicated that “My salary decreased but I did not lose my job "and 2 percent of our readers (22 people) said" I lost my job "

Our readers essentially confirmed the official data that at the low point of the epidemic, the number of people losing their jobs due to the coronavirus increased to 130,000 in April. Before the epidemic broke out, 4,500,000 people had jobs, of which 130,000 were 2.88 percent. Of course, our measurement cannot be considered credible, as anyone could check anything on a voluntary basis, but it is definitely emphasized that the proportions are correct.

! ️And here are the latest official figures:

The first two phases of the Economic Protection Action Plan were successful, we managed to save jobs endangered by the coronavirus epidemic and create new ones, but we cannot yet sit back - said László György, State Secretary for Economic Strategy and Regulation of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology disclosed.
Partly as a result of the measures in the Economic Protection Action Plan, employment data continued to be favorable over the past week. For the fourth week in a row, the number of registered jobseekers has been steadily declining and employment is expanding. While according to statistics from the Central Statistical Office, the number of employees was 130,000 below the February value at the bottom of the crisis in April, and only 30,000 at the end of June. Moreover, the employment level in June is 12 thousand higher than in January. Our employment situation is really understandable if we think long-term: in June 2020, 4 million 470 thousand people were employed, 742 thousand more than 10 years ago, in 2010.

So far, the job protection wage subsidy has contributed to the retention of employees in the case of nearly 14,000 enterprises: so far, after nearly 200,000 employees, the enterprises have applied for the subsidy in the amount of about HUF 33 billion. This is complemented by the form of support required for those working in research and development, which is unique in the world, and which was requested by nearly a thousand companies for more than 18 thousand people, worth approximately HUF 14 billion. In addition to retaining the old ones, the creation of new jobs is directly served by the job-creating wage subsidy required by the 24,000 companies. To date, the scheme has contributed to the creation of more than 33,000 jobs, with budget support of nearly HUF 39 billion.

In addition to direct support, a significant proportion of measures contribute to job creation more indirectly through investment support. The government has so far supported domestic enterprises with more than HUF 500 billion through various investment support programs. As a result, a new development worth nearly HUF 900 billion can be implemented in the near future. Investments contribute to the growth of productivity, the production of higher added value, and the strengthening of environmentally friendly solutions and the green economy in Hungary. In addition, HUF 486 billion of loan applications have been received so far for state-subsidized preferential loan schemes, of which the amount of credit transactions already contracted by commercial banks is HUF 209 billion, László György informed.

The Secretary of State emphasized that it was important that we did not sit back despite the existing measures. Therefore, the government is currently working on measures that could be a solution specifically for companies in difficulty, but only if the businesses involved also play their part in crisis management.
