Several millions of Poles prefer to stay abroad rather than return to home country during the time of crisis.The fact that statistics on the Polish migrations in recent years are too low, say openly, even those who left. They estimate that at least in the Great Britain number of Polish immigrants is two times higher than official figures show it, and up to 1 million people. Moreover, they admit that with the start of the crisis many of immigrants began to leave Britain but not for returning to the home country but to another state, looking for a better job .
According to research, at the end of 2008, number of Polish immigrants was up to 2,21 million. Due to data almost one – fifth Polish people had been working abroad during last years. And the number of trips is not decreasing. Despite the fact that first boom of exile is over, it’s certain that in the future the wave of departure is not going to let up. Immigrants say that the reason is simple – it’s better to live abroad and have a sense of economic security, even if someone is working below his qualifications and calmly preparing language skills to work in his proffession, rather than taking part in Polish rat race and never being sure about a job.
For working abroad are searching mainly young Poles, better educated than the general public. The half of them have less than 29 years old and this fact is the main and most acutely loss for Polish economy situation.
