Peter, and do you know how expensive is rent/house in Warsaw Poland with energy bills? Dont talk when you do not know anything

all money in poland goes to renting/bills. and guess what. its not from corruption its from the real estate market being owned and catered to western europeans :\

ziomo you taliknig is trash. minumum wage in poland 1600 pln = about 400eur . average wage 3800PLN. = 850 euro . zimom in what poland you live? Poland GDP per capita 21000 USD . moldavia 4000 USD.
#Koskos on Oct 22, 2013 :
ziomo, according to numbeo the buying power is 58 and in Moldova it's 24, so I guess Viktor wins this round. The other thing is the reason why people of Moldova are more than twice poorer, which is that in Moldova the level of corruption is much higher.
#ziomo poland on Jul 16, 2013 :
Victor , we have the same problem in Poland ,at real life , we dosent have better salaries than you in Moldova . An we are in European Union . Thats weird ...
#Viktor on Jul 11, 2013 :
It's all good, bud with the salary we get, it's realy hard to leave her you know... I mean usualy the salry goes away for rent and bills, and you end up having nothing to eat from(
