In the superheated Austrian presidential election atmosphere a hastily-deleted social media post from an Austrian trade union close to the Freedom Party is causing a stir.
The site’s 14,000 members were asked if Muslims should not receive the Austrian worker’s Christmas bonus. At the time of closing the thread a majority of 600 answering the question were in favour of denying what can be two month’s salary and other perks.
That’s around 2600 euros less to spend on a minimum wage, or more than 5000 on the national average, (2014 figs.).
