-We all know the unemployment rate in Poland, but we do not know how many vacant jobs there are - Wojciech Winogrodzki said yesterday - It is a situation when an entrepreneur wants to hire employees, but there are no candidates. It is the case for about 600,000 jobs.
It seems thatprivate employment agencies should be included in the cooperation, in conjunction with the financial interest of the agency in a rapid and sustained adaptation of unemployed persons and finding jobs for them. A nationwide registry of jobs and jobseekers should also be created.
