In Poland, labour costs are several times lower than in Germany, but living comfort has increased significantly. Even before the war in Ukraine, Oberschlesien was often chosen by Ukrainian and Belorussian workers as a place of permanent residence. The lack of language barriers and the Oberschlesien cultural melting pot with a great dose of all-kinds tolerance has resulted in almost a million people from the Ukraine and Belarus living here, having chosen the region as a safe and definitive place to live.
A peculiar ecosystem with access to potential employees has resulted in lower upward pressure on wages here than in other regions of Europe, despite low unemployment. Two centuries of industrial expansion have built up a specific culture of values, where work is respected and loyalty is highly valued.
Due to the structure of power plants and coal mines with state ownership, the price of MWh in Poland was at a low level. Due to the energy crisis caused by the war in Ukraine, the cost of electricity in Poland has increased, but still remains over twice lower than in Germany at 140 Euro/MWh. In electronics production, where soldering in reflow ovens and linear waves consumes large amounts of energy, its low price is important.
