From one job to another – such is the daily life of almost a million Poles. Recent GUS research shows that in the last quarter of 2014, 974 thousand people had more than one job. According to pulshr.pl, Poles decide to work two jobs mainly out of economic necessity – writes “Nowy Obywatel”.
– Some can hardly make ends meet with one job, others have decent wages, but want to improve their standard of living: go on holiday, realize their passions or simply pay their loan back quicker – says Monika Zaręba, labour market expert of Employers of Poland.
GUS figures show that 6.1 percent of all working Poles have two jobs. Most of them (62.8 percent) are male. Most popular sectors for additional jobs are agriculture (46.4 percent), education healthcare and in social care.
