A few stats to pad out the reality.

For those people thinking of working in the call centre environment and "Administrative support with languages", take note of the last entry on the table above, this is what many of your Polish co-workers will be earning.

It is worth remembering that this is Gross, NOT Net.

How much of a percentage do you lose to get net?

My friend told me about a job where the gross salary was 5000zł and net was 3000zł. So in this case, 40%. Yikes.

@ Monitor thank you for the tax calculations.

Average rental prices in the kujawsko-pomorskie region for flat ranging from 30sqm to 50sqm seem to go from 850zl pm up to 3000zl,
with the average offer falling round 1300zl for a 40sqm pad. This is not including ground rent which can vary greatly.

Correction, I checked the message again and it was 3500zł net, so a 30% reduction, or probably more accurately the number that Monitor provided.

The next link is to Numbeo, this very useful site lists consumer prices for Gdansk which is the main city in the Kujawsko-Pomorskie region ( i think).

numbeo.com/cost-of-living/city_result.jsp?country=Poland&city=Gdansk

For all those people wanting to understand the fiscal realities of day to day Poland for the masses, the information is out there and much of it contained within this site.

Unfortunately you have to dig through the flaming trolls, the nationalists, the racists, the nonces, f*ckwits and morons who desecrate this potentially marvellous forum with their inane drivel.

Merged: How much do Poles really earn?

Television tells us that the average wage in Poland is 4,200 zł gross or 3,000 net. Viewers rub their eyes at such revelations in disbelief because 2/3 of all Poles earn less. In 2012 the most common pay was 1,591 net. One-half earned less than 2,236 net and 19% earned 3,549 net.

You might be increasing the average with your $. In all seriousness though here money pl just repeats after GUS:
