Is it really worth moving back to Poland to study in a pharmacy school?

when they get finished laughing in your face, take a deep breath and rethink what you're writing on here, weg.

Thats just great, because in your la-la land nobody' wages will never rise and I can employ people on low wages.. for ever. There will be an infinite supply of low paid people for foreign companies to employ, no matter how many factories are built, the will never run out of people willing to work for 1200pln per month. The Germans are going to love it, unlimited employees to work for low wages FOR EVER.

You should setup a new school of economics, call it Fuzzywickets Perpetual Motion Economics, the New Reality of Unlimited Infinity.

walk up to a teacher who's been working for a school for 10+ years and ask her, "how much were you earning 8 years ago? 5 years ago? 2 years ago?"

do the same for a cop, a nurse, someone at the corner Biedronka, etc.

I can't quite imagine doing this in a country where "Dzien Dobry!" gets you an icy stare from strangers on the street. lol

Uhhhh, you say "dzien dobry" to random people on a street? That's not quite "lol", that's "I'm totally inept in all social situations".

You're probably barking it at people. I would also give you an icy stare ;)

Poland ain't a "hey, what's up" to random strangers in the street kinda country. Save your "dzien dobry" for shop clerks and the like. If ya know the person, give em a "cześć" for a shout-out.

Get of your high horse dude.A receptionist/front desk in the US makes $8-9/h and he/she wouldn't make 10k PLN even when working 2 receptionist/front desk jobs.40x9=360x4=1440x3.3=4752.And this is with USD high,now do the count with USD at 2008 level of 2.1 (which is coming soon).Who are you trying fool?

I posted this in another thread but these salaries are accurate:

gross dude. gross.

No, as police stated on their site "zarabia miesięcznie „na rękę”, which means that this is their salary after all taxes. In a tabel they clearly stated netto.

Police have good salaries plus earlier retirement. I don't say thats bad, conversely, good for them. But don't make me believe in you 3000zł story. Police site says a different one.

Well, thats a worthless comment, you think GDP means nothing. What matters, fairies?

No, not fairies. Inteligent partner in a discussion for starters.
The one to whom I don't have to repeat the same arguments I made few days ago.

Thats just great, because in your la-la land nobody' wages will never rise and I can employ people on low wages.. for ever.

In our la la land prices also are rising. You can't get it because in "your world" prices are unchangeable?

I don't care what the site says, my father in law earns what he earns and he wouldn't care what the site says either. It's a pittance. It always amazed me how I, Joe Shmoe American, who had been in his country for just a few months, earns double what he earns when I'm having a bad month.

So you know everything, no amount of contradictory evidence counts and thats the end of the matter. Obviously its a waste of time discussing this with you, isn't it.

I've known the man for 5 years and he told me what he makes. His wife as well (it's funny how Poles talk about salaries like that, in the USA, we're super uptight about salary talk) so I believe them before I believe some link on the internet. It's that simple.

Public workers won't be getting pay rises this year. So I guess you are right about that. Private workers are a different matter.

Public sector works shouldn't expect to get paid well.

I'm not a family person. I know wroclaw best though so I'm thinking of just getting a place there. I haven't been in some 8 years (hence, out of practice). I keep hearing hell about poland.. Ze mlodzi uciekaja. Is it financially wise to move there?

I would say that if you are happy where you are then you should stay there, you should get paid more where you are at the moment.

I don't know much about other services in Poland versus the country you are in at the moment, but these should also be taken into consideration, are there good schools, hospitals etc. in Poland? It is fine getting paid well in Poland but it may still be difficult to live there is the services are poor.

That's pretty much my point. One doesn't walk up and say hello in Poland, much less ask for their financial status. And to assume that the way things are done in Polish cities is the way they are done "in all social situations" would indicate you are rather limited in your exposure to "social situations" around the world.

You're probably barking it at people. I would also give you an icy stare ;)

Barking? You mean the caps? I plead guilty to the unnecessary capitalization of "Dobry" but maintain that capitalizing "Dzien" was appropriate. :->

^If it's any consolation, I totally got your joke from the beginning. I thought it was pretty witty. I think it missed a few people.
