DUE TO THE INFLUX OF WORKERS FROM UKRAINE WAGE GROWTH IN POLAND HAS SLOWED
Already 20% of firms are employing workers from Ukraine. In most cases, they fill the gaps that can not be filled by the Poles. However, on the other hand the influx of Ukrainians has slowed the growth of wages in Poland, reports Upmp.news, referring to the report “The Labor Market Immigration Barometer – II half of 2017”.
First of all, such a trend appeared at large firms. The smallest number of Ukrainians works in small enterprises – only 13%. For the most part, Ukrainian workers work in low and middle positions in Poland. To a large extent, this is due to the fact that they are most often employed on the basis of a simplified procedure, which allows them to work in Poland only for 6 months a year. This is not enough to occupy managerial posts.
Despite the stereotypes, Ukrainians earn not least than Poles. Due to the shortage of workers, Polish employers are forced to pay the same amount as to local workers in order to obtain workers from Ukraine.
