People keep saying that but its just not true, where the **** do these people get their information from? Yeah sure Poland has positive growth and a few other positive signs but consider where theyve come from.
I am in total agreement here, these posters who read that Poland is the land of opportunity are being influenced by false information, sure there are more forms of entertainment and choice, the vast majority of Poles can't afford the full extent of it.
Poland's growth is due to FDI. EU funds and well managed figures, the west needed a success story to encourage the former soviet countries into Nato and the EU. Poland was chosen to be that success, because it is a country you can do business with.
Most Poles live off much less than 10k PLN - try 3.5-4k for a couple who both have poorly paid jobs. It ain't pretty but that's the reality.
As I previously quoted, there is a less expensive life, but it is not really a life. You have got to be a very special couple to accept it, especially if one of them is a foreigner. It would be enough to drive a person to drink.
A lot of the people that live on the outskirts of Wawa are financially well off, so yes i would agree with you here about having 3-4 cars in the family.
The wealthiest people in Warsaw live in Zoliborz, Mokotow, Centrum and Konstancin.
Utter and complete nonsense. Ever heard of public transport?
I do take the Metro sometimes, if you don't need to, you don't do it.
Are you really that spoilt?
So a young married couple with a baby on the way living in a two/three room flat with their parents is what you would call comfortable living. I call it a lesser life, nothing about being spoiled.
From the figures Wendel quotes, you want to avoid Warsaw, its sounds very expensive. Mind, thats where the best paying jobs are.
I would not put off anyone trying for a better life in Poland, but I think its about time posters stopped with the rose tinted glasses cr*p. Unless you have money to support you or a well payed job to walk into. Understand what you are about to put yourself through.
