The Employers of Poland have been consistently opposed to the ideas of a group of MPs from PiS, PO, PSL and SP aiming at introducing a ban on working in retail outlets on Sundays.
According to the Employers of Poland, the introduction of a ban on trading on Sundays will involve high social costs – increase in unemployment and slower economic growth. The reduction in domestic consumption and in tax revenues will be a consequence of such a solution. The Employers of Poland estimate that about 25 thousand people could lose their jobs in the trade sector alone as a result of the introduction of such a ban. While taking into account related services and production, 50-70 thousand jobs would be at risk.
