The average annual wage in Poland fell by 0.3 percent when inflation is taken into account, according to data from the Central Statistical Office. This is the first such decrease since 1989. The government expects real growth of average wages at 1.9 percent, while economists surveyed by Rzeczpospolita expect growth of 1 percent.
Experts however stress that companies will consider the poor economic situation and only key employees may expect their salaries to grow.
