The main opposition party has a plan to prevent exodus from Poland

Mr Błaszczak emphasized that unemployment in Poland continues to climb despite low labor costs
Main opposition party Law and Justice (PiS) has accused the government of inaction in the face of another exodus from Poland expected to take place once Switzerland opens its labor market in May 2014 and when the minimum wage in Germany is raised.
“These are the reasons why we can expect another major wave of emigration of young Poles looking for work in Western Europe,” Mariusz Błaszczak, leader of the party parliamentary caucus, said and added that in Poland unemployment continues to climb despite low labor costs.
Mr Błaszczak said that PiS wants to prevent economic emigration of Poles by introducing tax incentives for those investing in new technologies. The details of the plan will be presented in February 2014.
“The biggest insult to Polish society is the fact that so many emigrate from Poland looking for work. This proves that the transformation over the past 20 years has been a complete failure,” PiS chief economist, Janusz Szewczak said.
