According to recent estimates by Poland's Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, the unemployment rate rose from 12.5 percent in October to 12.9 percent in November. The Ministry estimates that by the end of November there were 2.06 million Poles without a job, 64,100 more than in the previous month.

“The economic slowdown and the unstable financial situation in different industries is making employers more careful about hiring new staff,” states the report, which was published on December 7.

The report also says that authorities are aware the winter time means the end of seasonal jobs, likely making the unemployment rate higher.

From the new year, the state plans to release additional funds for labor offices around the country to provide additional job training for the unemployed.
