i'm not saying that everyone gets that, and i also know its not true, but they have taken into account the high earners also in this, so thats the average

as people have pointed out here before, there are different ways of calculating this figure... i would like to know what the average hourly rate is for people earning wages rather than salaries...

How much is that in dollars? What is the minimum wage in Polonia?

based on the exchange rate for zl to £ and then the rate for $ it works out at about $950 a month

To give you some idea for lowest pay...Someone I know is looking for part time janitor employee for his bar, 2-3 hours daily, job has to be done anytime before late afternoon so it has flexible hours and he's offering 5.5 PLN, paid in cash.

So far nobody seriously was interested he said but I know he's afraid of being robbed by his employee so he probably was picky.

1250zl per month

About 450 dollars per month. Well that's still better than minimum wage in most latin american countries. In the dominican republic, its about 150 dollars a month.

yes its true many polish people get shity payed... But many got good payed too,
My cousin gets 2000+ zl while my other gets 15.000+ zl,its like this in every country.
Well maybe not in Sweden there its kind of that 70% got the same pay. But in about
5-10 years Poland will have the same pay as in other Eurpoean countrys Poland are developing very fast, I hope many Polish people that are living outside Poland will come back and help Poland to rebuild it.

Hahahaha dont try to say why im not living in Poland, i will move to Poland when its the right time for it.

Kind regards David

Minimum wage is 936 zlotys brutto. Netto its about 650 zlotys I think. Its about 162 euros, 217 dollars or 108 pounds. Absolutely embrafuskingrassing.

I hope that more ppl will emigrate for their own good.

When you quote the average wage (I think 2700zl a month sounds right) doesn't mean every man and women get that sort of money.

Firstly what is the tax component?

My cousin has just started working gets about 900zl a month minus tax.

Could I ask Mr Kowalski what he thinks ( he has always provided reliable and accurate information..)
Thanks in advance Sir.

That's why alot of people from the US go there to retire. They can live well there with the money they get from their US pensions.
