WHAT ABOUT POLISH EARNINGS. DO THEY EQUATE WITH THE REST OF EUROPE ?
It's quite common in cities like Berlin to see people employed under a so-called "minijob" - paying 400 euro a month. In Poznan, you'd have to be a blithering idiot if you couldn't get 1,600zl netto a month after graduating.
most commodities in Poland are over priced. Do you want to talk about electricity, gas, telephones, clothing etc, etc ?
Electricity reflects the real cost. Likewise with gas. Telephony is dirt cheap (the phones are unsubsidised, true - but that's no bad thing) compared to the cost of the infrastructure (which is about 15% less than in Western Europe). Clothing isn't cheap, but who the hell wants to buy cheap clothes anyway, made in some sweat shop?
I'm really not sure why people think Poland should be much cheaper than Western Europe when the economics don't add up at all.
