      You should not be surprised, as about 40% of Spanish people aged below 25 are officially unemployed. I work with a Spanish guy in the UK, so he told me most of them work illegally. Their employers don't pay any insurance contributions or the tax.
      Krakow is the place where I could get a free accommodation if I wanted to live there. My father has a partner there, so that's what she offered to me when I visited them 1.5 years ago. The problem is, my Polish BSc degree and my British MSc degree (both IT-related) don't come with any relevant work experience and very few companies want to employ trainees. My present work experience is very specific and it's related to preventing a fraud. I'm a kind of an NBA star in my company, as my British colleagues know fuckall about foreign languages, so I can recognise a fraudster by their wrong accent quite often. I have some network engineering skills plus a CISCO certificate, but I don't have any experience doing a real job.
      Krakow is a very nice place to live in and I may be there in 1 week for 1-2 days.


      • Rewriting history intensifies.

        PiSdiot propaganda machine have hit new lows in past few days. On 4th june Poles were cellebrating anniversary of first free elections. PiS was busy propagating lies that it conspiracy of communist elites and traitors(aka anyone not PiS) within Solidarity.

        TVPropaganda ofc was leading the charge with its banner of terror. "4th june symbol of treason and elites conspiracy."

        Internet unforgiving as usual very quickly found a lot of PiS politicians talking out of their a..s about those times. Either because they were active participants in that "treason" or because they were in some cases not even born back then.

        Meanwhile PiS has run in to bit of trubles with their local election campagin. Evil traitors and collaborators of foregin powers dare to yell inconvinient question during meeting of mainline politicians with supporters. Ofc its traitors propaganda that questions during those meetings were staged to prevent that. The yellers then accidently ecounter usualy very unhappy cops "just following orders" who gather their personal data. There is no info soo far what goverment does with this information.

            If it's q/q then it's a very good result.


            • There are currently spreading students protests against PiS higer learning reform that will allow goverment to gain substantialy increased control over universities. Currently protests are ongoing in Warsaw, Poznan, Lodz and Krakow.

              A goverment appointed rector will gain complete control over universities including de facto ability to appoint his sucessor. Division bewen scientific and humanistic studies will be removed resulting in titles being granted by peoples without proper qualifications.

              Founding will be changed to grant susbstantial political influence on who will recieve money.

              Its practicaly just ability to do purges regime style in velvet gloves.


              • NIK PiS illegaly used money from crime victim aid fund to fill CBA secret fund.

                Higest controling office has declared that Ministry of Justice has illegaly transfered funds from reserve for helping victims of crimes to CBA (anti-corruption bureo).

                Ziobro has transfered 25m pln (about 7m USD) in to operational fund of CBA. It is unknown what money were used for.

                Story unfolds roughly like this:
                1. Ziobro cut funding to crime prevention/victim aid NGOs. It is quickly pointed that targets are mainly groups not ideologicaly in line with PiS conservartive chrsitian outlook.
                2. Ziobro accuses some former goverment offical of improper spending.
                3. Police raids several of those NGOs.
                4. Ziobro gives 25milion PLN to CBA, 1m PLN to parts of Father Rydzyk empire.
                5. Human rights spokesperson notifies Higest Controlling Office basicaly one of few legal bodies not under complete PiS control with investigative powers.

                6? Prosecutor office with general prosecutor Ziobro should open a case against ministry of justice and mr. Ziobro.



                • CPI in May 1,7% y/y (final reading)

                  core inflation merly +0,5% y/y


                  • NIK goverment is seting up procurement contracts and mass abuses procurement laws.

                    Higest controlling office has published another report stating that minsitry of health has set up procurement conditions to eliminate competition for purchase of mobile dental clinics.

                    75% of orders that could be awarded without procurement had its value set up wrong.



                    • I'm on a holiday in Poland and I'm "enjoying" the new law - my local supermarket is closed this Sunday, as trading on Sundays has become haram.
