The article describes the changes in the Polish labour market within the last 25 years. The
year 1989 closed the post-war period of the communist centrally-regulated labour market,
which had been based on permanent obligatory employment for the leading working
class. Neoliberalism and globalisation have created a flexible labour market in all Europe
including Poland, resulting in developing a negative phenomenon of precarious work.
