Former President Aleksander Kwaśniewski, who enjoyed very high popularity ratings during his two terms in office, was well known for his readiness to engage in dialogue with political opponents and for his peaceful cohabitation with right-wing governments.

So Kwaśniewski's views on the special gala organized recently by the President Lech Kaczyński's Office to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Poland regaining independence is all the more relevant. Kwaśniewski said it was incomprehensible that Lech Wałęsa had not been invited to the president's gala, at which around 800 people were present. The celebrations became another part of the political dispute between the ruling coalition and the opposition Law and Justice party supported by the Polish president. It is hardly surprising then that the prime minister, two deputy prime ministers and parliamentary speaker did not turn up, although they had been invited. It is a sad reflection on democracy in Poland.

Although unemployment is still on the decrease in this country, one can hardly expect that the Polish labor market will not be affected by the global financial crisis. The economic slowdown predicted by economists may lead to job cuts and even mass lay-offs. This trend is already noticeable in the industrial sector, which quickly reacts to changes in the business climate. Construction companies seem to be particularly vulnerable. Other sectors of the economy are also now likely to take a more cautious approach to plans to hire more workers and may even cut staff. Companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange have already said they would shed 5,500 jobs by the end of the year.
