Unemployment falls to 10.4 percent in June

The unemployment rate in June fell to 10.4 percent from 10.8 percent in May.

Employers publicised 117,000 new job offers in June, Minister of Labour Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz said.

The minister added that the figures were a “record in these statistics, which have been compiled since 2011.”

The most offers were made in the Mazowsze region (15,000), Silesia (13,000) and 11,000 each in Lower Silesia and Wielkopolska.

"This means that the fall in unemployment is running alongside creation of new jobs,” Kosiniak-Kamysz said.

According to ministry estimates, the situation in all voivodships improved, with Warmińsko-Mazurski noting the largest rise, of 0.7 percentage points.

Kosiniak-Kamysz said single-digit unemployment could be seen in the next two months. In six voivodships it was already the case, he added: Pomorski, Wielkopolska, Mazowsze, Małopolska, Silesa and Lower Silesia.
