German minimum wage has no impact on Polish experts

The minimum wage passed by the German parliament last week is a positive development for low earners in Germany but its impact on the Polish job market will be limited, the liberal daily Gazeta Wyborcza comments: "This is good news for some Poles who already work in our neighbouring country. But there won't be a mass exodus of Polish experts to Germany. It's true that we like to travel to Germany. ... They [the Poles in Germany] mainly earn their money in restaurants and cafes, at hotel reception desks, in the healthcare sector and in German car repair shops and agricultural businesses. But also our IT experts, engineers, nurses, chemists and a growing number of doctors go there to have successful careers. ... But because they earn far more than 8.50 euros an hour, the new minimum wage is irrelevant for them."
