A new survey indicates that 84% of Poles believe that the labour market is in a poor state, some 10% more than last year. The survey by the Public Opinion Research Centre (CBOS) also found that a third of respondents were prepared to describe the situation as “very bad.” Only a few held the opposite opinion, with just 2% enthusing that the labour market was in rude health. 10% of those surveyed said that the labour market was neither good nor bad.
Last month, demographer Professor Krystyna Iglicka from Warsaw's Lazarski University told the Dziennik Gazeta Prawna newspaper that “research shows that 64% of young Poles feel that only work and a life abroad will be able to give them some kind of chance for the future.”
In February, year-on-year unemployment was up 1% to 14.4%.
Meanwhile, Poland's economy is slowing quarter by quarter. The growth rate saw a significant overall drop last year, to 2.0%, compared with 4.3% growth in 2011.
