Experts argue that this year our wallets will feel an improvement on the labour market. “Gazeta Wyborcza” checked which sectors can offer the best wages.
– Poles’ real purchasing power increased by 4 percent – says Łukasz Kozłowski of Employers of Poland. According to him, a similar real increase awaits us this year. – Inflation will be low, in the first half of the year we may again be faced with deflation, employees’ wage pressure may also increase – he thinks.
According to Kozłowski, an analysis of data on unemployment justifies the assumption that companies will be forced to be a Little more generous. Eurostat figures – which does not consider people registered as unemployed, but working illegally, as unemployed – show that unemployment in Poland is at a level of 8 percent (according to GUS, registered unemployment in December was at a level of 11.5 percent. – The situation has not been that good since 2007, when companies found it really hard to find qualified employees which made them more willing to raise wages. A similar situation may occur this year – comments the expert.
