The average monthly gross wage in April was 3398.67 PLN, which means that it grew in the scale of the year by 3.2%, and fell in the scale of the month by 2.7% – as indicated on Wednesday by the Main Statistical Office. The average salary excluding payments from profit in April was 3397.01 PLN, therefore it grew in the scale of the year by 3.2% and fell compared to March by 2.7%. In comparison to March, the employees of the companies received almost 95 PLN less, but compared to April last year – they got 104 PLN more. A decent salary dynamics has been maintained three months in a row. As GUS also stated, in April the businesses employed 5 million 308.3 thousands of people, which is the same as in the previous year and 0.3% less in comparison to March.
The undesirable tendency of reducing job positions, which lasted since February 2009, has been stopped. This data is slightly better than anticipated, since a minimal, 0.2% reduction in the number of employees was assumed.
It indicates that our industry not only has the worst behind it, but even starts to boost up. Therefore, it can be anticipated that the number of employees will start growing in the following months.
