A possible drain of the Ukrainian workers from Poland to Germany might negatively affect the Polish economy, the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers of the Republic informed as quoted by Die Welt.

The Polish businessmen are concerned about the fact that on December 19, the Government of Germany approved the draft bill on immigration. It provides cancellation of priority for the Germans and citizens of other states of the EU in hiring since 2020. If Bundestag approves it, professionals from Ukraine will have an opportunity to get employed in Germany legally.

The experts counted that half a million Ukrainians will leave the Polish labor market, and the negative scenario supposes that the number will be twice as many.

For now, around two million Ukrainians live in Poland, most of them are labor migrants. Only a few hundred appealed for asylum.

The Polish business has been suffering from constant migration of the citizens to other EU member states, including Great Britain, for a while. The birth rate in Poland is 1,3 children for one woman, which is a very low indicator.

Due to this, the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers of the Republic of Poland urges the government to attract more foreign workers and support the granting of citizenship.
