‘The labor market shows the increasing employment problems for the workers. Our researches show that this problem is not too big today but in a few year, it will definitely become acuter. We carefully analyze the inflow of the immigrants from Ukraine to know their influence on our economy. They positively influence not only the labor market but also the system of the social insurance as they pay our fees’, he said.
Poland experienced the deficit of the skilled labor especially strongly during the last years. The level of the unemployment in Poland was 6, 6% in December 2017. Only 16 millions of people work in the country with the 38-million population. Such negative trends as the ageing of population and labor migration among the young Poles to rich countries of Western Europe became a problem for the labor market of Poland. The wave of the cheap labor from Ukraine and Belarus compensated the personnel gap in Poland.
‘Will we find the workers in Ukraine and Belarus to cover the deficit of labor force in Poland? Will be there the people flow from the villages to cities? What is the further professional activation of the women?’, Glapinski revealed the issues that raise the concern in the National Bank.
As we reported Mateusz Morawiecki, the Prime Minister of Poland claimed that Poland accepted at least a few dozens or even hundreds of the thousands of the refugees from Ukraine. Svitlana Krysa, the Head of the Consular Department of the Embassy of Ukraine to Poland claimed that only 625 Ukrainians appealed to the Polish authorities with the request to provide them the international protection in 2017 and the dozens of thousands of the Ukrainian refugees are out of question.
