Poland -Poles rarely strike -February 07, 2013

Research by The Economist shows that strikes are relatively rare in Poland. Only Swedes, Dutch and Germans strike less often. Additionally, Poles go against a European trend by striking less often since 2008. Experts say the downward trend in strikes is due to higher unemployment levels, fewer regular contracts and lower trade union density.
