It is more like it takes people time to trust you and you have to earn your respect. Government in Poland It is exactly like customer service. I think Poland is still a socialist country weighted down by an army of bureaucrats. Poland could be one of the richest countries in Europe, in seven years, if it eliminated the income tax. Demographically Poland is going from 40 million to 35 million very soon.
Customer service in Poland It is getting better but not the best. However, to do this it would have to modernized, computerize all aspects of government. People have few kids and many leave for the USA, UK and now Germany as the EU is one market.
The first thing you will notice about Poland is life is sweeter.
You do not make as much money or have all the niceties of living in the US or UK but life has a quality all its own. If you have ever seen the movie ‘Kate and Leopold’, you have the idea.
Basically if something breaks it is your problem, even if the EU grants you a two-year warranty. In some ways this is great, housing prices in Poland should continue to fall, but on the other hand the fat government will not be able to pay the bills and will tax the people or to p[ay for the fat bureaucrats pensions. I think eventually Poland will invite immigrants from Ukraine and Asia and Turkey.
To get a return on a defective product you need to prove everything and they will still tell you no. If you want to get a Polish citizenship and you have Polish roots, you are welcome.
Working at job is harder you need to have concrete skills.
If you are an entrepreneur or a manager you will be richer than your counterparts in London or New York if you factor in the Polish standard of living and lifestyle.
Living in Poland is like living anywhere else in Europe.
I think the Poles tend to be more connected to nature as manifest by the large percentage of people in Poland who have farms or gardens.
It is a micro climate where moisture from the Atalanta meets cold weather from the north and it is mostly damp, cloudy and cool. You always have more primitive people who are negative and angry about life, but in my experience people are very nice in Poland.
I would say only one in five days are really sunny at best. If someone is upset at life they will be upset at the world. While in America, I think people are more friendly, at least on a superficial level. However, at a higher level, the people in charge are very responsible and want to improve the system.
That is the reality because Poland had the war and communism. Further, Poles get around the system a lot so what they report might not be the reality. It will take until about 2025 until Poland is on par with the West in terms of worker. If you are marriage in Poland you wife will stand by your side and be very loyal.
