POLAND LICENSES TO ITS JOB UKRAINIAN STUDENTS
A number of Polish firms began to offer students from Eastern European countries, including Ukraine, legal employment for a period of one month or more. The “Make Money for Gifts” campaign, which takes place as part of the EdWork project, has already been supported by several dozen Polish companies. For example, temporary jobs for foreign students, among other companies, are actively offered by clothing manufacturers.
In particular, they are looking for personnel to work in their logistics centers or in warehouses.
Also, under this program, you can earn extra money by the seller of a confectionery or ice cream.
Clothing packers, order pickers, sellers are promised to pay about 12.5 zlotys per hour. They promise to reward extra success.
They promise to provide housing for free, but they will deduct from the salary 250 zlotys per communal apartment.
Therefore, students really get 11-11.5 zł / hour on their hands. Working day for 10-12 hours.
As UBR.ua was told by the president of the All-Ukrainian Association of International Employment Companies Vasyl Voskoboinik, our students do not have to rely on any higher-paid places.
“They take them to the lowest positions, since no one will spend time training a specialist who came to work for only 1-2 months. Nevertheless, no special documents for employment are needed, it is enough to have confirmation that the young man is a student. Thus, young people not only acquire knowledge, but also the skills of making money, maintaining themselves independently of their parents. Programs for students are traditionally very many. They go to Poland because there are good conditions for studying there – relatively inexpensive and high-quality education, which makes it possible not only to earn extra money for students, but also to continue to work in the West, ”said Vasily Voskobojnik in an interview with UBR.ua.
By 2020, Poland will lose half a million able-bodied people. And over 10 years, of the 20 million necessary workers in Poland there will be only 16 million. The main reason is the fall in demographic indicators. Another is the departure of Polish workers to European countries, where salaries are several times more than Polish. Therefore, the struggle for Ukrainians, as labor, is intensifying.
If six months ago, Ukrainians worked in 19% of Polish companies, then in September – in 23%. The number of employers who want to hire Ukrainians has also increased. Salaries of Poles and Ukrainians have become closer. The demand for personnel from the East is growing so fast that employers must offer them attractive conditions that are close to the proposed compatriots.
Now a third of Ukrainian workers receive up to 693 euros per month. And only 15% earn more than 808 euros. Therefore, in order to keep the Ukrainian worker, Polish employers began to improve the working conditions of Ukrainians. Already now, in addition to salaries, they offer various bonuses. Almost 38% of Polish businessmen took upon themselves paperwork, 31% – provide Ukrainians with housing, 29% – with medical insurance. However, employers cannot change complex administrative formalities.
