The Labour Market during the Pandemic

There was an observable, systematic improvement in the general assessment of the situation on the labour market in Poland from 2015 to the beginning of last year. In effect, the first half of March 2020 was the best since CBOS research into this began. Comparing the results of the newest survey with that from last year clearly shows the dramatic change in perception of the Polish labour market after a year of pandemic and its associated restrictions. The percentage of respondents whose assessment of the labour market was positive fell by close to half (a drop from 64% to 33%), while the group with a negative assessment almost tripled (up from 9% to 26%). There was also a clear increase in people who judged it to be neither good nor bad (a rise from 20% to 29%).

This year’s significant slump in positive assessments of the situation on the Polish labour market is not reflected in the official unemployment figures. It could, however, be the effect of a general change in the situation of working people and jobseekers during the pandemic.
