Unemployment rate, for the first time at single-digit level

Date22 Jan 2016

In September 2015, the official unemployment rate, for the first time in 7 years, reached the single-digit level of 9.9%. But within this figure, regional differences can be seen. In Lower Silesia unemployment was 9%, the lowest in Poland since 1999.

In this region large companies still had problems to find suitable employees. In Wrocław, this is a monthly growth rate of 2500 employees from abroad, mainly from the Ukraine.
