As many as a quarter of a million specialists across Europe changed their place of residence in the period 2003-2013 in order to find work. Poland lost the greatest number of workers. “40,000 highly qualified Polish people left home in order to find a job abroad. The most popular destinations for these new immigrants were Great Britain, Germany and Belgium. More than 50% of those who left specialised in professions in the healthcare industry,” we read in Gazeta Wyborcza. Unfortunately, it seems that Poland will not replace these people anytime soon – only 2,000 specialists have arrived in Poland from other countries of the EU to find work. When it comes to countries outside the EU, mainly Ukrainians come to Poland to work in agriculture.
