Hungary says Sunday is sacred for workers
BUDAPEST, HUNGARY- Lawmakers approved a measure that bans most stores from opening on Sunday, a day the government says employee should not be forced to work. Trade unions and business groups challenged the law that passed Tuesday. Even the Economy Minister said last month the measure was "not wise." One in five Hungarians shops on Sundays but the Prime Minister wound up supporting the ban. Supermarkets estimate up to 20,000 jobs could be lost. The ban does not apply to small, family-run stores. The National Association of Entrepreneurs and Employers vowed to organize a national movement against the Sunday shopping ban.
