As we reported the citizens of Ukraine were issued the uniform of the different color than the uniform of the Poles at the Lindab Company near Warsaw, Poland. The local entrepreneur explained that the color of the uniform demonstrated the level of the acknowledgment of the Polish language by the worker but the anti-racist union Nigdy wiecej (Nevermore) claimed about the violations.

All workers wear blue pants and T-shirts of different colors depending from the position. A crew chief wears a red T-shirt, a mechanic wear a green T-shirt. The Ukrainians are issued the yellow or orange T-shirts. The yellow clothes belong to people who do not know the Polish language and the orange clothes are for the people who know the Polish or English.
