Re: Poland seeks seniors solution to labour shortages

I have always found it strange when I hear my relatives stories about early retirement in Poland, I am always told that it doesn't pay to work if you are offered a pension, what most do is work on the side (cash in hand job) and enjoy having more time complaining about life in poland.
With rising prices I think this will change and Poles will need to work to 65+ like everyone else in the western world.

Re: Poland seeks seniors solution to labour shortages

The trick is to retire early, get your full pension, and then be re-employed in your old job, but with fewer hours. 30 instead of 40, for example. Otherwise you run into tax problems.

Re: Poland seeks seniors solution to labour shortages

Good to see that the new government plans to tackle the problem.
