According to Eurostat data, the lowest unemployment in the European Union countries is in Poland and the Czech Republic, while the Greeks and Austrians work the most. The statistics show that it is worth having a university degree because only 4 percent of university graduates remain unemployed.

Poland, with a result of 73 percent (2019), belongs to the group of EU Member States that have achieved the employment level in the 20-64 age group in line with the targets set by the European Commission for 2020. The main indicators describing the situation on the labor market in Poland from year to year improved, and our gap to the EU average was systematically decreasing.

Greeks work the most in the EU – an average of 43.8 hours a week, and Danes the least. In Denmark, the average number of hours worked per week is 38.4. Despite the fact that the Greeks work so much, unemployment is highest in Greece – as much as 16 percent.
