Poland -Increase of nominal labour costs -September 18, 2012

Eurostat revealed that during the second quarter of 2012, nominal labour costs in Poland rose by 3.9% in comparison to the same period a year earlier. The European statistical agency said that the rise was due largely to pay rises, and not new overhead costs or taxes. However, with inflation at nearly 4% for that period, according to Poland's statistical office, in real terms, the country labour costs remain about even. In the meantime unemployment has remained a serious problem in since the economic transformation in the early 1990s. It currently stands at 12.3%.
