|Warsaw offers the highest-paid jobs for young workers|
University graduates entering the Polish job market in 2012 had better financial prospects in Warsaw than in any other big city in the country, according to a nationwide study of earnings carried out by HR advisory Sedlak & Sedlak.
In 2012 Warsaw offered its employees with Masters degrees the highest earnings, with a median salary of z³.6,778. Three cities – Gdańsk, Poznań and Wroc³aw – came in second with a median pay of z³.5,000. £ód¼ ranked last among the six cities examined in the report, with a median salary of z³.4,150 monthly.
College graduates in Gdańsk, Kraków and Wroc³aw had to work on average nine hours and 20 minutes every day to earn as much as their peers made in Warsaw in only eight hours. Poznań came in fifth with 10 hours of work. Among the major Polish cities included in the study, £ód¼ offered the lowest pay, with graduates having to put in 11 hours and 12 minutes of work to keep up with their Warsaw-based peers.
