The data of the Polish Central Bank and Eurostat show that for today, Polish economy is one of the most rapidly developing in the European Union. This fact is being explained by the presence of Ukrainian migrant workers, as DW reported, Censor.net informs.
It is noted that the conflicts in Crimea and Donbas lead to the mass migration of the Ukrainians, 1 million of whom went to Poland.
“Our economy would be a disaster without Ukrainians,” the Chairman of Polish Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers stated.
Today, according to the data of the Polish foreigners’ authority, Ukrainians file almost 90% of the requests on getting a residence permit. Most of them get a job then as domestic helpers, on building areas or farms.
“They learn the language themselves and then work with due diligence,” the Chairman speaks positively of labor migrants from Ukraine.
At the same time, with the fact that Brussels cancels a short-term visa for Ukrainians, the number of Ukrainian migrants in Poland decreases. Other European countries, which became more accessible, start to attract them. Moreover, as the news agency reports, the improvement in wage levels in Poland does not solve the issues right away – it would lower the attractiveness of the state for the foreign investors.
