Poland has an employee’s market, Family, Labour and Social Policy Elżbieta Rafalska said on Thursday, pointing to the country’s historically low unemployment rate.

Joblessness in Poland fell to a new low of 6.8 percent in September, the country’s Central Statistical Office (GUS) said earlier his week.
"The number of unemployed people is falling, the employment rates for [both] men and women are improving,” Rafalska said.
“What is pleasing is the increasing interest in employing the 50-plus group, but the unemployment rate among young people under 30 is also falling.”
Rafalska added: “If we add to that the factor of rising wages, no one today in Poland has the slightest doubt that we have an employee’s market.”
She warned, however, that such a situation meant challenges that would have to be faced "so that the economy is not limited by a lack of workers on the Polish market,” which already looks to the country’s eastern neighbours to supply staff.
