Poland - Retail workers’ payment improves - December 31, 2017

The Biedronka retail chain announced an increase in wages at the beginning of 2018. The relatively low unemployment leads to a situation with shops facing more competition to attract good workers, driving them to offer not just improved wages but also benefits packages that may include provisions like private health insurance, paid holidays, and more. Depending on the location and position, the Biedronka employees’ pay will increase by 200 to 550 PLN per year following 2018. Currently a cashier receives a monthly 2550 PLN (608 euro). At competitor Lidl this pay is around 3300 PLN (787 euro).
