Polish Jobs Growth Slows in June, Wages Beat Forecast

(Corrects wage growth figure in second paragraph.)

Polish jobs growth slowed in June to 0.1 percent from a year earlier, the Warsaw-based Central Statistical Office said today. The figure compares with 0.3 percent growth the previous month and the median forecast of 0.2 percent in a Bloomberg survey of 24 economists.

Average gross wages rose 4.3 percent in June from a year earlier, matching the rise in consumer prices and beating the 3.5 percent median forecast of 25 economists surveyed by Bloomberg.
