What they say you get and what they actually pay you is also two different things.

Seriously - why are you trying to come to Poland? There's nothing here for you!

I find it amusing how so many Indians post on these forums hoping to get employed by someone.

Do Indians tend to be naive?

I would imagine some are desperate rather than naive.

And by the word "some", I mean it in relation to the population of India.

Yeah, but I can´t help to notice the silliness of their posts. Whether they are looking for a woman or for a job, they ALL Sound the same: Desperate.

Just over 2 Euro an Hour(4 times lower than Ireland). Thats why couples get 50 year mortgages and live on lettuce and milk until they get so old that their kids continue their mortgage..A real utopian society.

Because quite a few of them don't have a clue what it's like here. They assume that there will be work for them, they assume that they'll be wanted - and very often, they end up sitting inside most of the time with no money because they didn't have something that was wanted in the country.

Just look at all the foreigners in Krakow trying to give English "lessons" for 25zl an hour!

They tend to be very immature from what I know. Many of them simply cannot handle cold facts - I knew one with an alcohol problem who went mental when he was sacked - for drinking himself stupid after hours!

Is that what it's like when you don't work in Krakow, leaving it all to your badly educated, bible bashing wife while you sit at home and pretend to be an internet "entrepreneur" who doesn't even pay taxes in Poland? I guess checking adult profiles doesn't pay very well...

In Warsaw about 5500 gross but the median is much lower

In krakow about 4500 gross at a guess.

Check the gus website for exact figures, there was a long article about it in gazeta wyborcza last week as well

Milky, i think you have very skew view of Poland. Stop judging by the Poles in Ireland, there ia a reason why they left. Doesn't mean everyone does as bad as them.

Ok, i will be more specific - you have skew view on wages in Poland . In your previous post you said that average salary is 28 000 Pln before tax, which is not true. Judging Poland through the eyes of Poles in Irenand? I refer to your view on Poland which is clearly affected by view of Poles that left Poland for better life (nothing wrong with that). They are simply not a representative group of Polish society, there are plenty Poles that stayed in Poland and are not thinking of leaving.

Minimum salary? I got 7 hundrets plus something and I had a chance to get "premia uznaniowa": around 200 zl.
It was my first salary, a 1000 brutto after being promoted in a very good and rich Advertasing Agency.
Really. Means, I was a proof-reader, not a model, hehe.

About 28000 zloty a year, before tax,,is the average industrial wage


Poor show, milky.

The average wage is now nearing 45000 a year.

Don't mistake lazy peasants in villages with normal people.

This is wrong on so many levels that I wouldn't know where to start.

Here: average salary in Poland according to GUS research:

mowimyjak.pl/praca-i-kariera/finanse-i-biznes/ile-wynosi-srednia-pensja-w-polsce,104_37376.html

(details and Polish-English version: [stat.gov.pl/cps/rde/xbcr/gus/PUBL_pw_zatrudnienie_wynagrodzenia_I-III_kw_2011.pdf])
4,015 zł (gross).

Put it here: infor.pl/kalkulatory/wynagrodzenia.html ..and you get around 2,860zł take-home pay.

Also, as Mr Sadowski from Adam Smith Centre points out: "average salary is an optical illusion [...] it's influenced by the big agglomerations where directors of big companies earn tens of thousands zloty'.

Even higher than I thought then - nearly 50k a year.

It's also dragged down by many peasants in villages who live off small parcels of land - I'm pretty certain this is why Poland appears (on paper) to be far poorer than the Czech Republic despite living standards being clearly higher in Warsaw than Prague, etc.

Not bad. A couple both earning average wage can easily afford decent accommodation in a Polish city by those figures.

...is not average at all. They are the lucky ones.


Have you ever heard the term "Generation 1200"?



delphiandomine:

Yes. That small parcel is what lets them survive in a region where there is no work in 100km radius.
But of course it's them who are "lazy".

Lucky? What's lucky about working hard and achieving something for yourself? Instead of taking your kids out of school to work on some crappy "business" like what frequently happens in villages, getting them educated is by far the more sensible approach.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the hardest working people I know (usually the ones who went for work experience during university rather than nice holidays) are also the richest.

Incidentally, I know plenty of people earning more than average. All of them have one thing in common - they worked hard for it and didn't sit around blaming everyone else.

ladykangaroo:

Why should someone who turns up at exactly 7am, leaves at exactly 3pm and who does nothing to improve themselves get any more?

ladykangaroo:

No, that small parcel is what keeps them peasants. If these farms were bigger and more productive, they would have meaningful employment and everyone would be better for it.

Easy enough - any of us can do it.
delphiandomine:

Pretty well. The equivalent of Chavs in the UK in many cases.People who for decades steadfastly refused jobs in nearby towns because they'd have to get up on time and stay sober.

A lot of people live on that and manage holidays, cars etc.

Indeed. I'm almost certain that if you opened up a factory in many of these villages, they wouldn't take the jobs anyway - they wouldn't want to work to someone else's standards and ways. How often do you read and hear about hungry children in villages - it's all too often the result of neglect rather than actual poverty.

It's interesting to note that despite unemployment being higher in the East (and so - wages should be lower) - new factories are opening in the West, not the East. Could it be something to do with mentality?

Fiddly job picking out the Colorado beetles, though. My father-in-law tells me the CIA dropped them. Don't know how he knows this, but as they dropped Agent Orange he could be right. Off to the lounge with me.

Some villagers up near Szczecin burnt down a veg processing plant on a former PGR. Why? Because the owners banned them for health and safety reasons from drinking vodka near the machinery. They'd modernised the workers' flats, increased salaries but the Neds said they didn't care about that.

I think you think of 19th century England. Or maybe 1930s in US.


The rest is just simplistic interpretation bearing all marks of the lovely attitute "you are poor and it's your fault" and being completely detached from reality.



delphiandomine:

Ah, more presumptions based on nothing.

As for opening factories in the West... look at the map and communication links. Roads, rail tracks, airports etc.
