Hungary passes its first anti-Semitic law, limiting Jews to just 20% of the total economy.

This will require that at least 30,000 Jews lose their jobs over the next five years, the time allowed for the goal to be put into effect. The only objection to the law comes from those who don't think that it's anti-Semitic enough. They complain that Jews only make up 5% of the population of Hungary so letting them participate in trade, industry, and professions at 20% of the economy is giving them too much.
