From Habitat For Humanity:
• Nearly 12 million Poles – almost a third of the population – live in overcrowded homes.
• About 1.5 million families live with their relatives.
Is this a bad thing? Just because a lot of Poles decide to keep multiple generations living under the same roof does not mean they are all poor. Some of the families I know choose to live this way no matter how much moeny they have.
Maybe I am wrong, but I think Polish people have a great set of values when it comes to families and what they choose to be important in their lives.
