Paramedic salary in Poland

Start as you mean to go on, its your law or the door.

Yes, this is crucial, as is not living within easy reach of the grandparents and other family. He might think it's nice that they visit the grandparents every Sunday, but it will soon grate when the grandfather is stuffing the child full of sweets and fizzy drinks.

Very often these types would sell their grandmothers for ten zloty, but you know this from the outset, so if you understand this and alter your approach its not a problem.

The thing is that it's not even patalogia in many cases, it's just a different approach to family relations - but for most Westerners, it can be suffocating.

Patalogia I think in one word. But thats easy, stay away from hick towns and small minded people family or not

Always a good idea.

As a well-trained professional, there must be plenty of interesting options for him. He should explore all of them, and perhaps use a little lateral thinking - there may be an option that hasn't yet occurred to him.

A left field suggestion - he should look for work with a startup in the medical field. Could potentially be very well paying, especially if he can sell.

nothing that he mentioned in the last post makes me think it's a good idea to move. rather he should focus on building the relationships he values at home. moving will make it worse. there are no magic values here that you cant find anywhere else.

Couldn't agree more with you. Especially as he thinks that Poles aren't obsessed with money, which, well...

It appears to be some sort of romantic fantasy, a variant of the "noble savages" myth. That is what struck me when he said that Poland is how Ireland used to be 20 years ago. I don't know where this "family values" thing is coming from, though. In the US, that is a religious right dogwhistle code meaning blatant homophobia. I'm struggling to guess what it means to him.

That sort of thing doesn't travel.

There are some very good opportunities for this generally. I think though that he'd be hampered by a lack of Polish language skills and a lack of connections. Most of that sort of thing in PL is done by doctors who want to give up medicine for something more lucrative, like sales. It's also very competitive and capitalistic too.

There's always alternative therapies (Poles are suckers for this sort of thing), however there's the language issues again, along with the market for this being in the larger cities - a long way from his rural idyll.

I've wondered the same. Poland may come as a shock to him, when his neighbours on one side have swinger parties, his neighbours on the other side hold pagan moots in their garden and the two women opposite both transition into men.

That's exactly it. He wants the rural tranquil life, but the only thing he can realistically do is to live in the city.
