Hungarians protest against PM's new so-called 'slave' law

    Demonstrators in Hungary have rallied again to protest against a new amendment to the labour laws.

    What critics are calling "The Slave Law" would allow employers to force people to work more overtime, and even delay payments for up to three years.

    Nationwide protests have been held since last week; the government hopes they'll go home for Christmas and forget, but these demonstrations may be different in that they have attracted Hungarians from across the political spectrum.
