Latest data from Poland’s Social Insurance Institution (ZUS) shows that the number of foreign citizens – specifically, people from countries outside the EU – working in the country has gone up.
In the 4th quarter of 2019 foreigners working in Poland sent PLN 3.9 billion (EUR 882 million) to their home countries, down by PLN 200 million (EUR 45 million) year on year, the National Bank of Poland (NBP) reported on Tuesday.
With domestic unemployment at record lows, Polish workers are increasingly opting to stay at home, new research has found.
As Polish companies struggle to find qualified workers, more have been hiring foreign citizens, above all from Ukraine. Right now, that can involve long waits and paperwork.
