This chapter presents tables of data on Poland and an account of its increased earnings distribution. It shows that the period since 1960 has not been one of stability in the distribution of earnings in Poland. There appear to have been distinct cycles during the communist period, notably associated with the Solidarity Movement and its aftermath, and the employer surveys indicate that the post-communist period saw a large fall in the bottom decile relative to the median, and a fanning out of the upper part of the distribution.
