The minimum wage in Poland should not be expected to change drastically anytime soon, Gazeta Wyborcza reported.
“I do not think we will want to lower the minimum wage, but it is also certain that it can’t be increased when economic growth is slowing down,” Prime Minister Donald Tusk told reporters last Friday.
“I do agree that raising the minimum wage, especially when GDP growth is lower, may directly or indirectly push the unemployment rate up – and this is what I’m trying to explain to our partners,” he said.
“However, there is no doubt that the minimum wage in Poland is not unreasonably high at the moment,” he added.
