Thousands of people in Budapest demonstrated against Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Saturday, denouncing the harsh labor reform that’s been branded a "slave law." Passed in December, the reform allows companies to demand that staff work up to 400 hours overtime a year. It also allows payment to be delayed by up to three years. The modification to the labor code has sparked the biggest street protest in over a year.
