Does Work in Italy Pay Off? The Employment of Qualified Polish Women in Italy Against Polish-Italian Migrations

 

Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego

The book is the first attempt to outline the situation of qualified Polish women employed in the Italian job market after Poland joined the European Union in 2004. Against the background of contemporary and historic migrations from Poland to Italy, the author presents the results of unique qualitative and quantitative repeated research in which the Poles characterize their employment and its conditions, adopted strategies for development and the existing barriers in building a career.
