Poland changes a legislation at the state level and if you are a foreign citizen, you will be paid less. Kateryna Kryvoruchenko, the Head of Expert-Analytical Center HeadHunter said this as 24 Channel reported.
“Now the legislation is changed in Poland. At the level of the state, there is an initiative to pay less if you are a foreign citizen. In other words, it is particular state regulators that influence you anyway. Moreover, when we talk about the difficulties (the difficulties of the work for the Ukrainians in Poland, - 112 international), there was an impossibility to work for the profession. It is uncomfortable for people,” she added.
According to the expert, the employment in Poland is a complicated action, especially if the issue is about the relocation with family and children.
“If you are going to be alone, it is one situation. You can afford to live for some time in the conditions you are not used to. But if you move with your family then you need more. It is a medical insurance, school, and education. We understand that it is connected to many spheres of our life. So the move and work are not so easy,” she added.
Earlier we reported that Ukraine is losing not only the workforce but also a part of an active population due to a labor migration. In just a few months since its creation, the online platform UkrainianPeopleLeaks.com recorded 350,000 people who left the country.
As it was reported earlier, the population of Ukraine shrinks because of the labor migration, which often turns into the de facto migration, which means people choose to stay abroad rather than to return to their motherland. The research says that highly-educated Ukrainians go to Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and settle for the work in factories and fields. '39.2 percent of them carry out the most primitive work; 24.7 are involved in the handicraft, and another 16.5 work in the sales area. They earn less than the locals', reads the survey.
