The announcement by Donald Tusk that the new government will start with the payment of the 800+ benefits and the promised 30-percent pay raises for teachers is a significant commitment. It shows that the new government is aware of the importance of social policy and is willing to take action to improve the lives of Polish families and teachers.
The payment of the 800+ benefits will be a significant financial relief for many families with children. The benefits are currently paid to families with children under the age of 18, but the new government plans to extend them to families with children under the age of 24.
The 30-percent pay raise for teachers is also a welcome step. Teachers have been demanding higher wages for years, and the new government's commitment to this issue is a sign that it is taking their concerns seriously.
The new government's plans for the tax-free amount of PLN 60,000 and the mortgage holidays are also significant. The tax-free amount will be a significant benefit for low- and middle-income earners, and the mortgage holidays will provide relief for borrowers who are struggling to make their monthly payments.
