Everywhere in Ukraine they say that young people are our future. Make way for the young! The support of the new generation is not only lazy. But as this manifests itself in deeds?! And, in fact, Universities provide less relevant knowledge, employment of young professionals require experience, and support remains only in the beautiful long-forgotten slogans and mottos. At the same time, European countries offer a range of real proposals, attracting Ukrainian youth not with words, but with actions.
It's no secret that the outflow of personnel from Ukraine is growing every year and while the government on paper describes strategies to combat poverty, in the same Poland are taking real steps to help keep and attract young people. And all this in order to preserve and multiply the growth of the economy in the country.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki presented a package of various tax and social innovations, which were named the five Kaczynski. Thus, people under 26 years of age are completely exempt from income tax. In addition, the base tax rate on personal income is also reduced from 18% to 17%. All these innovations are planned to be introduced in October 2019.
After that, it is not surprising that young people a huge stream tends to leave their homes, going in search of their place under the sun. Another confirmation of the sad statistics are the data of the Polish company Selectivv, which reported that on the territory of Poland is home to 1 250 000 Ukrainian citizens. With the Ukrainians, at the age of 21-30 years in Poland, 38% ie, 475 000 people, 29% of Ukrainians at the age of 31-40 years i.e. 362 500 people.
This study of the Polish organization does not end there. It turns out that in January 2019, almost 12% of Ukrainians, who now live in Poland, plan to grow roots here, create a family and get pregnant (this figure has doubled over the year).
And what is happening in Ukraine at this time?! Well, in Ukraine everything is still stable. Consistently bad. Minimum wages in the country still occupy the last position among European countries.
According to Eurostat data on the minimum wage, the countries were divided into three groups, according to the head of the National Council for economic development Alexei Doroshenko. The first group with a salary below 500 euros per month. This includes EU member States such as Bulgaria, Latvia, Romania and Hungary. Where the minimum wage ranged from 286 euros in Bulgaria and 464 euros in Hungary.
The next group with a minimum salary of not less than 500 euros, but not more than 1000 euros. Among these EU member States were: Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Greece, Portugal, Malta and Slovenia. The minimum here starts from 506 euros in Croatia, and the maximum in Slovenia is 887 euros. Well, the third group, where the minimum salary starts from 1000 euros includes: Spain, UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Ireland and Luxembourg. Here the minimum salary starts from 1050 euros in Spain and reaches 2071 euros in Luxembourge.
In Ukraine, the minimum wage today is 132 euros, which is half the minimum wage in Bulgaria and 16 times less than the salary in Luxembourg.
– We are used to a monthly wage. But this is more difficult to find in developed economies. Everyone knows how much an hour of work costs. Therefore, our country should do the same, that is, move to hourly wages. Then both the employee and the employer will count their money better, because the number of hours worked by citizens of different countries of Europe is increasingly different from each other. And it significantly affects wages –said on his page in the social.networks Alexey Doroshenko.
Whatever it was, but the numbers speak for themselves. And while in Ukraine demagoguery is bred and talk about the subject of outflow of personnel, poverty and what to do with it, in European countries offer real steps to attract young people. In this light, the choice of the younger generation is obvious and it is clearly not in favor of Ukraine.
