According to the Central Statistical Office of Poland (GUS), the unemployment rate was 9.3% lower in June 2014 than in June 2013. Over the course of one year, the unemployment rate among people with middle school education has fallen by 8.2%, while among people with higher education it has decreased by 9.2%. On the other hand, the unemployment rate among people who completed only vocational schools or post-secondary schools has fallen by 11.5%. The greatest fall of unemployment was noted among high school graduates, 12.3%. “The small drop in the unemployment rate among people without any qualifications is not surprising since the demand for such employees is negligible. This situation will not change,” states Professor Elżbieta Kryńśka from the University of Łódź. There are over 534,000 registered unemployed people in Poland, while 560,000 have a job (this includes work in the grey and black economy). However, the situation is different when it comes to people with higher education. “The economic revival and seasonal changes have not significantly changed the situation of people with higher eduaction on the job market,” states professor Urszula Sztanderska from Warsaw University. Only in the long run during the economic boom were college graduates able to find a job easily because companies invested more and the demand for specialists increased.
