/ COMAPRING POLAND PRICES WITH PRICES OF OTHER COUNTRIES
British-Polish typical wage scale: shop assistant, anaesthetist, bus driver, barmaid, plumber, computer programmer, etc.
Average wage scale as I pointed out above APPLIES to ALL of the occupations you mentioned Polonius .......that is 1500 zls Netto!.........average working Mans salary here is approx 1500-2000 zls (not mentioning other sources)
sad but true........so THIS IS THE REAL REALITY HERE IN POLAND,
THE Economy is right up the shi%#er as far as Im concerned, and I mean for "real' people, daily life , day to day.get the drift!
and do me a favour folks, dont throw in and mention Warsaw wages are higher etc........thats the same as saying London/New York salaries are "average"
and If anyone thinks this "rant" of mine is by anyway related to bitterness or unhappiness, your sadly mistaken, I am very comfortable here, but feel angered at the way the countries pricing structure in real world terms is almost ignored.
I work in Music, I deal with electronic goods daily, and the "amateur entrepreneurism" that goes along the name of "business" here is an absolute disgrace.....I KNOW the majority of Electrical goods ditributor costs, and retails costs and the margins of profit are scandalous to say the least.
almost all goods sold to countries in the EU are sold at the same price, either in discount or in bulk, either from china or elsewhere, and the Markups that are going on in Poland are a disgrace.
Doing business here has definately got about 10-15 yrs to go before it balances out on par with most of the EU.
Trying to sell houses with out descriptions, or even photographs, laughable estate agents cashing in on the "stupid tourist syndrome.
people trying to sell cars without a price attatched...mmmm I dont think ive ever met anyone who wants to phone a complete stranger only to be told and embarrased that the item is "out of their reach" pricewise.
The fear of your neighbour finding out what your selling your goods for is still too reminiscent of commusnist times.
2008 goodbye....hello 2009....... lets see if it will be better .lol
