Union: No Christmas bonus money for Muslim OAPs
Heated debate has started over a trade union's suggestion that Muslims should not be eligible for a recently-agreed Christmas bonus for pensioners – because they do not believe in Christmas.
The "Free Workers of Upper Austria", a trade union linked to the country's far-right FPÖ party, caused a stir when it launched an online poll over whether Muslims should have the right to Christmas money.
The trade union asked their followers if Christmas payments for Muslims who did not believe in Christmas was a contradiction, or whether the one-off payment - recently agreed by the Austrian parliament - should be made to everyone who works in the country no matter their religion.
