Nearly one in three Poles expects to lose their job within the next six months, according to a survey carried out by Randstad, reports Rzeczpospolita.
What's more Poles' confidence in being able to quickly find another job is also falling. However, they are not alone in this fear. In fact out of the 32 countries surveyed, only Turkish and Swiss workers were more optimistic than their Polish counterparts.
“It is high time that moods worsened taking into consideration the increasing number of bankruptcies and forecasts that 250,000 people could lose their job due to group layoffs,” said Monika Zakrzewska of PKPP, an employers association.
She also predicts that subsequent surveys will show a steady worsening of moods.
