– Many of our customers have postponed or suspended their purchasing decisions, which leads to overstocking of finished goods warehouses and the need to slow down production – explains Jacek Siwiński, President of VELUX Polska.
The demand for regular services is rising
Others may feel this sluggishness. Unionists from the regular forces came to Warsaw. They’re not talking about layoffs, but about mass retirement.

– We all know what inflation is and what the government is proposing to us at the moment, that is, 7.8 percent, is unacceptable – says Rafai Jankowski, chief of the NSZZ police.

Fewer job offers
The unemployment rate in October was just above 5 percent.
– These are record levels and from this point we can only expect a slowdown, because this is the economic situation – assesses Kamil Sobolewski, Chief Economist for Employers of the Republic of Poland.
The changes are already visible on the job seekers portals. There are currently 22 percent fewer new offerings than in the same period – admits Pawe Świderski, director of OLX Praca.
The number of job seekers abroad increased by a third compared to last year. This is 370 thousand people. We don’t know how many Ukrainians there are.

More and more people are looking for part time jobs
The number of people looking for additional work is increasing.
