500+ program did not hurt labor market

Poland's labor market did not suffer from the much-feared mass outflow of female employees in relation to the child subsidy program PLN 500+, the daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna writes citing the data from the research center IBS.
Some 40,000-55,000 women quit their jobs or stopped looking for a job in H2 2016, according to the data.
Against the background of wage hikes spurred by the present employee market, an extra PLN 500 does not look like a sum that could influence a woman's decision to give up work, Michal Myck from the economic consultancy CenEA comments for the daily.
Female employees who did decide to quit were probably those with menial jobs, and as such were easily replaced with immigrants, thus additionally alleviating the "500+ effect", the daily speculates.
